Overview

Applicants must apply through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP), and all information should be submitted through the ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Please refer to the Lahey Hospital & Medical Center residency and fellowship pages for further application information. 

Requirements to be considered for interview include:

  • Personal statement 
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Transcripts 
  • USMLE board scores (Step 1 required) 
  • Medical School Performance Evaluation (MSPE) aka Dean’s letters

We do not have a cutoff for USMLE board scores. All applications are reviewed in their entirety in order to get a well-rounded view of each applicant.

We do accept international graduates and are willing to support a J-1 Visa from the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates, provided you have a valid ECFMG certificate. 

The deadline for applications is November 1. We typically wait for the entire application to be submitted, including Medical School Performance Evaluations, which are sent at the beginning of October.

Interviews taking place in 2020 will be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The interview day will include a virtual overview of the residency from the program director, an opportunity to meet current residents, and individual interviews with faculty.
