Instructions for Applicants
MMC participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). This process selects all PGY-1 residents in the institution. The general surgery residency program has four categorical positions, one designated preliminary position for urology and one designated preliminary position for vascular surgery, both at the PGY-1 level.
For the 2017-2018 interview season (PGY-1 beginning July 2017) applications will be accepted ONLY through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
In addition to the ERAS application we require a transcript of your grades, Dean's letter, three letters of recommendation and USMLE scores. The deadline for receipt of applications is November 1, 2016. We will not review any applications received after this date. The residency committee reviews each applicant's preliminary file and makes a decision whether or not the applicant will be interviewed, placed on a waiting list or not be interviewed. After the preliminary evaluation you will receive an email from us indicating your status. If you are to be interviewed your email will ask that you schedule your interview using Interview Broker, the link will be provided to you in the email. You may also call the Department of Surgery at any time if you have questions. You should call the Residency Program Administrator at (207) 662-2515. At that time she will indicate whether your letters of recommendation are complete and will answer any other questions you may have. We offer 10 interview dates between November and January typically on Thursday and Friday’s.
