All applications will be accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service only (ERAS) beginning September 15. The deadline for submission of completed applications is November 1st.
Applications must include all ERAS materials as well as the following documents:
- Official school transcripts
- Three letters of recommendation from board certified surgeons with whom you’ve worked
- Personal statement
- USMLE/COMLEX Transcripts (must have passed on first attempt for both as well as the CSA)

Foreign medical graduates should contact the ECFMG for instructions on how to apply using ERAS. You must have a valid ECFMG Certificate prior to applying to our program. We sponsor J-1 visa. We will not review applications from candidates who have been out of medical school for more than three years. We require at least six months of U.S. clinical experience.
We offer six categorical positions and six preliminary positions at the PGY-1 level.
Interviews are conducted in November, December and January. Our application committee reviews all complete applications and will decide if your application meets our criteria for interview. If you are chosen for an interview with our program, you will be notified via email.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email the Surgical Education Office at Jeannine.Bottis@umassmed.edu.
