International Medical Graduates

Graduates of foreign medical schools are welcome to apply to the Fellowship provided they have a standard ECFMG Certificate and an Arizona postgraduate training permit.

Fellows must either have U.S. Citizenship, valid U.S. residency, or a J-1 visa. H1-B visas are not supported by this Fellowship.

Timeline and Deadlines

Applications for the 2020/2021 academic year will only be reviewed through ERAS. This is for training positions that will begin July 1 of the following year. All documentation should be uploaded to ERAS by November 1 two years prior to the start date. Applicants can begin uploading their application materials into ERAS in mid-September—again, two years prior. Look for tentative dates to be posted here for day-long interviews in mid-November and mid-December—again, two years prior. If you're invited for an interview, you will be contacted through ERAS before these dates.

You will need to contact your medical school Dean's Office to access the MyERAS web-based application.

The matching program for Dermatology will coincide with the regular National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). The match, which takes place each March, selects residents to begin training July of the following year (e.g., in March 2020, we will pick residents to begin PGY-2 in July 2021).

Candidates invited to interview will be contacted via email.

Due to the volume of applications received, individual requests for status cannot be answered.
