Resident Selection

The Dermatology Resident Selection Committee selects from among eligible applicants on the basis of the applicant’s preparedness and ability to benefit from the Dermatology Residency Training Program.

  1. Aptitude, academic credentials, leadership potential, personal characteristics such as motivation and integrity, and an ability to communicate are considered in the selection.

  3. In selecting from among qualified applications, we participate in the Electronic Residency Application System (“ERAS”) and the National Resident Matching Program (“NRMP”).

The Application Process

Applications are being accepted during December for the fellowship year beginning July 1, 2011.

How to Apply through ERAS

You should apply for the Dermatology Residency Training Program at Georgetown University Hospital through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). ERAS is an Internet-based application process developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges to transmit fellowship applications, letters of recommendation, Program Director letters, medical transcripts and other supporting credentials from applicants, residency programs and medical schools to fellowship program directors using the Internet. Visit the ERAS website for information about the process or to register.

Upon receiving the applications through ERAS, Georgetown will contact candidates about the possibility of an interview. Interviews will be scheduled in the late winter and spring.

The “Match”

Once you have applied to the Dermatology Residency Training Program and accepted our invitation to interview with our faculty, fellows and staff, we hope you will choose to rank Georgetown at the top of your list of desirable training programs in Dermatology.

Georgetown participates in the National Resident Matching Program’s Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP) in Dermatology. This is a computerized venue for matching an applicant’s preferences for fellowship positions with program directors’ preferences for applicants. See the NRMP website for information or to register to participate in NRMP.
