Interview Season 2020-21

Application Submission

We accept applications through ERAS. Applicants can register in MyERAS now and can start submitting applications on September 1st. This season ERAS will open to programs on October 21st.

Interview Invitations

As a hybrid Academic/County program (but firmly on the county side), we participate in the Unified Program Release date. Interview offers will go out 11/2/20 with interview scheduling on 11/3. This year ERAS does not open until 10/21/20 with Dean's letters released the same day, we use a rolling process in the best of years, but this year that will certainly be the case, so even competitive applicants may not get offers on 11/2.
