Interviews are granted after review of appropriate application materials.

The applicant for residency training position must provide the following documents:

Medical Student Performance Evaluation (or Dean's Letter as applicable)

Three Letters of Recommendation from physicians practicing in the U.S. and Canada who have personally supervised the applicant in the performance of medical duties. If the candidate has previously been in a postgraduate training program, one letter must be from the candidate's former/current program director and two letters must be from supervisory attendings with whom the candidate has rotated within the preceding 12 months and/or most recent Post Graduate Year. Additional letters may be requested.

Official Medical School Transcripts 
Personal Statement (signed)

ECFMG Certificate (if applicable) 
Copy of Medical School Diploma (if applicable) 
USMLE Transcript or NBOME Transcript 
As applicable, all documents noted above must be submitted with official certified translations in English.

The applicant must appear for a personal interview (except in extraordinary circumstances). As the mission of the inpatient services at the MedStar NRH at this time is to care for predominantly adult patients, any resident entering the Residency Training Program as a PGY2 must have substantial adult medicine/surgical experience in their PGY1. Residents who question their clinical PGY1 schedule in light of this requirement may inquire of the Program Director as to its suitability.

The Georgetown University Medical Center/MedStar NRH Residency Training Program participates in the National Resident Matching Program and abides by its rules and regulations. It will accept NRMP match applications only through the ERAS system. These ERAS applications only will be considered through November 15th of each year
