Transitional Year Residency - Anderson

All applicants must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) (link to: The deadline for application is December 1st. The Transitional Year Residency Program at Anderson Campus does not sponsor the J-1 or H-1 visa.

Those applying for the combined transitional year/dermatology or the transitional year/radiology program would need to apply specifically for those programs.

ERAS automatically forwards only five documents from an application: the common application form, the Dean's Letter, a medical school transcript, an ECFMG status report and your photo.

Other documents, which we require, and which MUST BE SPECIFICALLY ASSIGNED BY YOU TO BE TRANSMITTED TO US THROUGH ERAS, include three letters of recommendation, a personal statement, an USMLE transcript or a COMLEX transcript if you are an Osteopathic applicant and a Curriculum Vita.

Once a completed application is received and reviewed, candidates chosen for interviews will be contacted via e-mail. We use ERAS to arrange interviews online. On this system, you will be able to select from open interview slots. A confirmation email will then be sent to you. We receive a large number of applications and interview days are limited. It is important to get your completed application in early. Our first preference includes passage of USMLE 1 & 2 and CSA on the first attempt. US experience is preferred. Interviews are held November to early February.

We do not offer observerships or externships.

We offer up to eight transitional year positions through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).
