Applicant Information - Internal Medicine at MedStar Union Memorial

Applications for the 2014-15 intern class (both preliminary and categorical programs) are only accepted through ERAS

Because of the great number of applications we receive, we recommend that students submit their applications as close to September 15, 2013 as possible. All visa statuses are considered. 

We will immediately begin reviewing applications and offering interviews on a rolling basis. We will stop once our interview slots have been filled.  For the 2014 recruitment season, we expect to interview approximately 160 applicants for our 11 categorical and 8 preliminary positions.  Historically, we have filled our interview positions within two weeks from the date we receive the first application.

Our admissions committee will look favorably on applications from the following individuals:

  • students who have rotated at our hospital
  • applicants whose hometown is in our geographic region (Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia)
  • applicants  with a serious interest in a primary care career
  • international graduates with clinical experience in the U.S.

We do not have a minimum passing-score criteria for the USMLE exams or other strict application criteria.  We will evaluate candidates on the above merits and as a whole for their potential contribution to our residency.

Within four weeks of your application submission, you will receive either an invitation for interview or a rejection email.

The interview invitations will arrive through Interview Broker, an online system that will allow you to accept or decline your invite and schedule (and reschedule if necessary) your interview date.  Once you schedule an interview date, you will receive further information.

For the 2014 recruitment season, we expect to conduct one interview session on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning October 15 through December 19.

If you have any questions about the application or interview process, please email us at our dedicated inbox at  Please do not call our office directly for general application questions as the office staff will direct you to this website or the email address.
