Ready to begin?

We accept applications for our program through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Our residency program participates in the National Resident Matching Program.

Requirements for U.S citizens and permanent residents: ERAS common application form.

  • ACGME program ID: 1404111362
  • NRMP program code: 1608140C0

Resident selection overview

Each year, we select 17 residents for our program. The academic year begins on July 1. Applicants are selected for interviews based on several criteria, including:

  • Personal standards of faculty members and current residents
  • Medical school transcripts
  • Letters of recommendation
  • USMLE/COMLEX scores

Preference is given to applicants with: 

  • Higher USMLE/COMLEX scores and no failures 
  • Active clinical experience 
  • Recent medical school training (less than three years ago)

As a matter of course when reviewing applications, we promote inclusivity and diversity in our program.

Interviews take place from October through January. This year, interviews will take place virtually.

If selected to interview, you’ll meet with residency leadership and spend time with current residents. You’ll get in-depth information about the program and have the opportunity to ask questions.

Medical student rotations

We participate in the Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO®) program. Fourth-year medical students have the opportunity to extern with our internal medicine department. We encourage all qualified applicants to visit the department. And we invite visiting students to participate in daily conferences.

The application process for Geisinger through ERAS was seamless. What made Geisinger special was my interview experience. Despite being virtual, I felt a warm and welcoming environment. What struck me the most was that each interviewer tried to know who I was as a person rather than just board scores or a GPA. While looking through the unique tracks the program offers, the community outreach and leadership track caught my attention. I wanted to go to a program which would train me not only to be a good physician but provide me with skills to be a community leader. If I had to do this all over again, I would still choose Geisinger as my first choice. I couldn’t be happier.”
