Geisinger's Emergency Medicine Residency participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). All applicants must enter the NRMP match program and submit a dean's letter, medical school transcript, national board scores and three letters of recommendation. Our website is comprehensive and contains information specific to the emergency medicine residency program.

We regret that the competitive nature of emergency medicine does not allow us to interview every qualified applicant. Interviews are granted by invitation only. We interview annually from October through December. Interviews are held on select Mondays and Thursdays. Interviews begin at 8 a.m.

Candidates will receive an overview of the program and have the opportunity to meet with several staff physicians and residents. Lunch will be provided. Spouses and significant others may prearrange a tour of Danville led by spouses of current residents. We provide overnight accommodations at the Pine Barn Inn for interested candidates.

Danville is approximately 2 1/2 hours from Philadelphia, 3 hours from New York City, 3 hours from Baltimore, 4 hours from Pittsburgh, and 4 hours from Washington D.C. Danville is only three miles from Exit 224 of Interstate 80. For those flying to Danville, driving times to airports include: Williamsport Airport - 50 minutes (occasionally gets weathered in during the winter months), Willkes-Barre-Scranton International Airport - 1 1/4 hours, Harrisburg International Airport - 1 1/2 hours, Philadelphia Airport - 2 1/2 hours, Newark Airport - 2 1/2 hours, and Baltimore-Washington International - about 3 1/2 hours (often has the best fares).

We hope that you will consider our emergency medicine residency program. Our faculty promises to continually work to improve the educational training and learning environment. Medical students interested in a fourth year elective rotation may contact us at 570-214-3607 or contact Mark Olaf, DO, Emergency Medicine Clerkship Director.
