MedStar Georgetown Plastic Surgery Residency Program is an integrated training program that has four categorical positions within a six-year program.
Note: All qualified applicants are considered for interviews. However, the volume of applicants precludes us from offering interviews to all who apply.
Candidates for the Plastic Surgery Training Program must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We require the following documents:
- ERAS common application form
- USMLE Step 1 transcript (and Step 2 when available)
- Medical school transcript
- Personal Statement
- Dean's Letter
- 3 letters of recommendation, including one Departmental support letter ("Chair's letter")
Graduates of international medical schools should contact the ECFMG to facilitate submission of documentation to ERAS.
Canadian applicants should apply through the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS). Contact CaRMS at 1-877-887-6742
- VISA POLICY: J1 visas are sponsored through MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
- The deadline for all ERAS application submissions for the 2019-2020 academic year are as follows:
- Priority Deadline: October 1, 2019
- Final Deadline: October 15, 2019
Candidates who have been selected to interview will be notified via email correspondence. All candidates are interviewed in person. During the interview day, each candidate will have the opportunity to interview with members of the faculty as well as the Chairman.
The interview day provides not only an opportunity for our faculty to meet the applicants, but also provides a venue for applicants to gain information about our program. We, therefore, provide opportunities throughout the interview day for the applicants to speak to current residents and view our facilities in a tour.
The night before each interview, we host a dinner at a popular Georgetown restaurant with the Department faculty and house staff present. This gives the applicant an opportunity to meet the faculty in a less formal setting.
Please be aware, all correspondence will be conducted through email.
