Application Process

Thank you for your interest in the ACGME accredited Advanced Dermatology Residency Program at the University of Arizona. We offer a three-year program that leads to eligibility for certification by the American Board of Dermatology. Candidates for certification are required to have a total of four years of postgraduate training which would include one year post-graduate training in an internal medicine residency.

Qualifications for admission to the Residency Program include:
• The successful completion of medical school.
• US citizenship or a valid visa, or J1 visa. This program does not support H1-B visas.
• Graduates of foreign medical schools must provide proof of having passed the FMGEMS exam, a copy of the FMGEM scores and a copy of the Standard ECFMG Certificate
• All accepted candidates must obtain an Arizona medical training license

Application Process:
The following is a list of documentation required when submitting your application:

   *ERAS common Application
   *3 Letters of Reference
   *USMLE scores (only Step 1 is req'd at time of application)
   *Medical school transcript
   *Dean’s Letter of Support
   *Personal statement

Applications for the 2015/2016 academic year will only be reviewed through ERAS. This is for training positions that will begin July 1, 2015.   All documentation should be uploaded to ERAS by November 1, 2013. Applicants can begin uploading their application materials into ERAS on September 15, 2013. Tentative dates for interviews will be Friday, November 15th, 2013 and Friday, December 13th, 2013.  

You will need to contact your medical school Dean's Office to access the MyERAS web-based application.

The matching program for Dermatology will coincide with the regular National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). The match, which takes place each March, selects residents to begin training July of the following year (i.e. in March 2014 we will pick residents to begin PGY-2 in July 2015).

Candidates invited to interview will be contacted via email. Due to the volume of applications received, individual requests for status cannot be answered.
