Application Information

We appreciate your interest in the Residency Training Program in the Department of Dermatology at Emory University School of Medicine. Applicants for our program must apply through the Electronic Resident Application Service (ERAS); therefore, no paper applications will be accepted. You may obtain detailed information on how to apply by contacting your Dean’s Office (U.S. medical school students and graduates), the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) (Canadian students and graduates), or the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).

Applicants to our Dermatology Program must complete a first postgraduate year in a broad-based clinical program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in the United States or a similar program in Canada accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. The clinical programs that are acceptable for the first postgraduate year are: a transitional year or a first-year residency in internal medicine, general surgery, family practice, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, or emergency medicine.

Due the large number of applicants it is necessary for interviews to be by invitation only. Our faculty will review completed applications in October and will issue invitations for an interview date in early December of each year. Detailed information regarding the interview itinerary, travel, and lodging will be provided.
