  • VISA POLICY: J1 visas are sponsored through MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
  • The deadline for all ERAS application submissions for the 2014-2015 academic year will be November 1, 2013.


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 DC 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.
