Thank you for your interest in the Neurology Residency Program at The University of Texas Health Science Center School of Medicine. We offer an accredited program with educational excellence and exposure to all aspects of neurologic care and research.
We offer two or three neurology residency positions per year (for a total of 8 residents). The residency is a three year program with a paired Internship/PGY-1 year in Internal Medicine that can be requested through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) http://www.nrmp.org. We accept applications from the ERAS application service only. Information is on their website http://www.aamc.org/audienceeras.htm. We encourage applicants to pursue their first year of training at UTHSCSA. An interview with the Department of Medicine is scheduled during your visit to the Department of Neurology.
International medical graduates must hold a J-1 visa or have resident alien status and they must have a valid ECFMG certificate. In addition, it is preferable that international medical graduates have some amount of clinical medical experience in the United States or Canada.
All applications received are reviewed with regard to academic performance in college and medical school, performance on USMLE/COMLEX, interpersonal communication (personal statement, etc.), extracurricular activities, research accomplishments, and letters of recommendation. In accordance with institutional policy all candidates will have passed the institution’s sanctions check. Competitive candidates will be invited for a formal interview. Applications will be reviewed as they become available in the ERAS system and candidates will be invited in the order they are received and reviewed.
If you have any questions feel free to contact Becky Karp, Academic Coordinator for the Department of Neurology at 210-450-0538 or email@example.com.
