Application Procedure

The University of Arizona Emergency Medicine Residency Program accepts applications for PGY I level positions only. This Program participates in the National Resident Matching Program.

Our program uses ERAS for the application process. Our program's deadline for receipt of ERAS application materials is November 1.  Please follow these instructions:

Please note: Locally we refer to our program as the University of Arizona University Campus Emergency Medicine Program, but the official ACGME name that you will find on ERAS, the NRMP site, and FREIDA is the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Tucson Program.

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 (SLOE) from two EM rotations (at least one at the time of ERAS submission);
  4. One current letter of reference (letters from Emergency Medicine physicians are best, letters from other clinical specialties are certainly acceptable, 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; and
  5. USMLE scores Part I (and Part II when completed).


Interviews for Residency Positions

Interviews for residency positions will be granted by invitation only after reviewing your completed application. Our interview season typically runs from the first week of November through the first week of February. Except for extraordinary circumstances, we interview on Tuesdays only.  PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL INTERVIEW CORRESPONDENCE, INVITATION AND CONFIRMATION DETAILS, WILL BE SENT VIA ERAS MESSAGE CENTER. 

2018 Application Cycle: We will be sending out invitations to interview on a rolling basis.  The first wave of invitations will go out around October 11.  Further invitations will be sent out later as needed until all of our interview slots are taken.
