Our program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). All applications to our residency program must be submitted via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), which is sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)

To apply, please visit the ERAS website at:

The deadline for applications to our department for 2020 is October 1, 2019. Applications received through ERAS after that date will not be reviewed. We will begin interviews no sooner than October 2019 and will continue to interview through January 2019. Interview dates will be posted in upcoming weeks.

Foreign applicants are requested to be certified by the ECFMG.  Applicants are required to have a visa covering the 7 years of  residency. The University of Illinois at Chicago ONLY sponsors foreign medical graduates under a  J1 visa. The University does not sponsor H1 visa as a rule.
