Frequently asked questions

Read on for answers to some of our most commonly asked questions.

Will I be required to conduct research?

Yes, fellows are required to complete at least one research project. We recognize projects that are submitted to national/regional meetings even if they aren’t selected for presentation. Projects submitted to journals are also recognized even if they aren’t published before you complete the fellowship.

Is there anything else I need to know before I apply?

We don’t have a cutoff score for board exams, but we do expect candidates to have passed on the first attempt. We hold interviews from August to October. You’ll be notified if you’re selected to interview, and an interview will be scheduled. Our program prefers to go through National Resident Matching Program.
