Requirements and Procedures for Resident Selection

The Cornerstone Care Teaching Health Center Family Medicine Residency Program participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Applications will be accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Candidates are selected for interview based on a combination of academic performance, national examination scores, letters of recommendation, and personal statements.

Family Medicine faculty and residents will interview candidates and complete an evaluation to be reviewed by the selection committee consisting of residency administration with resident input. Applicants will be ranked based on strength of academics, commitment to Family Medicine, professionalism, interpersonal communication skills, and fit with the program. Faculty involved in the selection process will approve the final order of the rank list and present to the Medical Education Committee.

The Cornerstone Care Teaching Health Center is an equal opportunity employer. No candidate for the Residency Program will be denied consideration for the program because of age, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, physical or mental handicap or veteran status, unless same is a bone fide occupational qualification.
