Application Procedures & Interviews for PGY-1

As our program is part of the University of California, Davis Network of Affiliated Family Medicine Residency Programs, all applications and interviews are coordinated through our Program Coordinator, Anna Hernandez.  The program accepts applications only though ERAS. US medical students may contact their Dean’s Office or visit the ERAS Web site at www.aamc.org/eras for information.

IMGs wishing to enroll in ERAS need to contact the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) at http://www.ecfmg.org for their application materials and eligibility requirements.

All applications are screened based on merit. In order to ensure the best interview date, please submit all application materials as soon as possible. The deadline for applications is December 31st.

The entire application is evaluated so we ask that you submit all supporting documents with your application. Selected applicants are then invited to choose an interview date using our interactive calendar. Once you have been screened in, you will be notified and given a Website address where you can select your interview date on the interactive calendar.
