How to Apply

The Johns Hopkins Residency program participates in ERAS and interns are selected from medical school graduates through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

House staff appointments extend from July 1 through June 30.

Application Requirements and Deadlines

We require the following items to be included in your application materials:

  • Personal Statement
  • Dean’s Letter and Transcript
  • USMLE Scores (Steps I and II, when available)
  • At least three (3) letters of recommendation from faculty members with whom you have worked (Note: We do not require a letter from your department chairman.)

Interview Process

During the visit for the required personal interview, we encourage applicants to familiarize themselves with Baltimore and Harriet Lane Service staff. The applicant can discuss details of the service with current house officers and faculty and also ask questions.

Our interview is not a test of a candidate’s abilities nor is it conducted in that fashion. Emphasis is placed on medical school recommendations, and the interview is principally designed to introduce the applicant to the service and vice versa. Married applicants may wish to bring their spouse when they visit.
