Residency Application

The Johns Hopkins University Emergency Medicine Residency is a four-year program. We participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) for PGY-1 match positions. We welcome allopathic, osteopathic and International medical school applicants, but require that you complete the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 1.

Application Requirements

The ERAS application:

  1. Personal statement
  2. Dean’s letter
  3. Medical school transcript
  4. Results of USMLE Step 1 and, if available, Step 2.

    Note: We require that all allopathic, osteopathic and International medical school applicants complete the USMLE Step 1 exam. We do not accept any other board scores.

  5. Three letters of recommendation

    Note: We require that one letter be from an emergency medicine physician. We strongly prefer the Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors (CORD) Standardized Letter of Evaluation (SLOE) be used for at least one EM letter. We are excited to review your O-SLOE (Off-service Standardized Letter of Evaluation) letter(s) this year in place of away sub-internship rotation letters.

  6. Applicants with previous residency experience must submit letters from their previous program director.

Foreign/international medical graduate applications must include:

  1. A copy of your ECFMG certification
  2. Copies of all ECFMG, Foreign Medical Graduate Examination in the Medical Sciences (FMGEMS) and Federation Licensing Examination (FLEX) scores
  3. At least three letters of recommendation

    Note: We require that one letter be from emergency medicine physicians from the U.S.A. but it is suggested that two of your letters come from emergency physicians.

  4. The hospital accepts ONLY J-1 visas.
  5. One year of U.S. clinical experience is required.
  6. Graduation from medical school not more than two years ago
  7. No failing scores on Steps 1 and 2 of USMLE
