Applicants interested in our fellowship program are required to use the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applicants can apply to the program as early as mid-June.
Applicants must provide (via ERAS):
- Three letters of recommendation
- USMLE scores
The program begins on July 1 of each year with no exceptions.
Interviews are scheduled from August through mid-November. Upon receipt of an ERAS application, applicants will be informed if any additional information is needed. Invitations for interviews will be sent to qualified applicants that have a reasonable chance of acceptance into our program. For this application season, all interviews will be conducted remotely, over Zoom.
Non-U.S. Citizen Applicants
Baylor College of Medicine cannot accommodate applicants requesting H1 visa status due to Texas Workforce regulations. Qualified applicants holding other visa designations are welcome to apply.
