Does Emory have preliminary medicine or transitional year positions and is a separate application required?
Applicants to Emory Dermatology interested in completing an internship at Emory should apply to the Emory Transitional Year Program. Applicants must apply separately to the Emory Transitional Year Program through ERAS. A separate interview is NOT required for the Transitional Year Program. If a candidate is selected to interview with the Department of Dermatology at Emory, this will be considered your interview for the Emory Transitional Year Program as well.
The number of Emory Transitional Year positions available for dermatology applicants varies from year to year but efforts are made to help those who match at Emory Dermatology also secure a position within the Transitional Year Program at Emory for interested candidates.
Applicants to dermatology should not apply to the Emory Preliminary Medicine Program. The Emory Preliminary Medicine positions are reserved for other specialties.
