Application Procedure

The University of Arizona College of Medicine at South Campus Residency Program is accepting applications for PGY 1 level positions only. This program is separate from The University of Arizona College of Medicine's categorical EM residency. Both programs participate in the National Resident Matching Program, so please ensure you are applying to the correct program. If you wish to apply to both programs, you will need to select both programs in ERAS.

For applicants in the PGY1 class beginning July 1 each year, we will be using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  Our program's deadline for receipt of ERAS application materials is November 1 each year.  Please follow these instructions:

Complete the electronic application (ERAS) at your Dean's office. 

Make sure you include:

  1. Dean's letter.
  2. Medical school transcript.
  3. Standardized letter of evaluation from the Emergency Medicine Council of Residency Directors. (The Academic Program Director at your institution is preferred.)
  4. Two other current letters of reference (letters from Emergency Medicine physicians are best, letters from other clinical specialties are certainly acceptable, and letters from other reference sources may be suitable depending on your background); applicants currently in post-graduate training must supply a letter of reference from their current Program Director.
  5. USMLE step 1 or COMLEX level 1.

If you have questions regarding the above information, please contact the Emergency Medicine GME office at 520-626-5582 or email our program manager at
