Requirements for Ob-Gyn Residency Training
Applicants for our program must have an M.D. or D.O. degree. US graduates must have passed Step I of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) and be scheduled to take Step II. Foreign medical graduates must have a valid ECFMG certificate prior to the application receipt deadline. If a visa is required to study in the United States, the University of Florida will support only the J-1 visa.
Applications for our program should be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®): https://www.aamc.org/services/eras/. Please include the following information with your electronic application:
- Class rank, if known
- Cumulative GPA (if your school uses a letter or numeric grading scale)
- Actual scores on USMLE Steps 1 (required for all applicants) and 2 (if taken).
- Personal statement
- Dean’s Letter of Evaluation (Medical Student Performance Evaluation)
- Letters from two faculty members, at least one of whom is an obstetrician-gynecologist.
- International medical graduates must have valid ECFMG certification before the application deadline.
- DO students who ultimately wish to practice in Florida must have already completed their AOA-required rotating internship. Our residency curriculum does not fulfill this requirement, set by the Florida Board of Medicine in order to obtain Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine license in this state.
All application materials must be received by the 1st of November. Interviews will be offered to qualified applicants between mid-October and late December. We typically have six to eight interview sessions, and invite six to eight applicants to each session.
The University of Florida Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is an equal employment opportunity employer.
