Apply for Residency Training
We accept applications via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®).
Applicants are strongly encouraged to have their applications completed (included letters of recommendation) by September 14th.
Letters of recommendation from any specialty are allowed; we encourage applicants to have at least 2 LOR’s from Pathologists.
We do not have any specific USMLE “cut offs”.
Terms and Conditions of Employment
Appointments are renewed annually, and continued retention in the training program depends on the continuation of requisite funding, as well as participants’ training progress and satisfactory performance. A resident’s reappointment and progression to more advanced levels is based on periodic reviews of the resident’s educational/professional progress and achievement.
The UF College of Medicine sets the annual stipend for residents at each level. Exceptions to these stipend levels should be approved by the Graduate Medical Education Committee and pays the employer contribution of FICA. Additionally, residents are eligible for participation in the State of Florida’s Deferred Compensation Plan.
We Welcome International Medical Graduates
University of Florida College of Medicine (UF-COM) welcomes applications for residency and fellowship training from our international colleagues. The UF-COM will sponsor J-1 visas for residency training only through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). The UF-COM will only, in limited case-by-case circumstances, sponsor any new H-1 type visas for training in any medical specialty. Permanent resident aliens who already have permanent work authorization are welcome to apply. All applications must be filed through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS).
Once selected or matched for a training program, it is important that International Medical Graduates (IMG) complete requested paperwork as soon as possible so that all deadlines can be met. Additional information regarding a J-1 visa application can be found at:
NOTE: It is important that J-1’s entering the United States wait to apply for a Social Security (SS) number until after checking in with their departments and SEVIS validation. Applying for a SS number prior to this may cause significant delays. For further information, contact
