Applying to Our Program


Virtual Recruitment 2022

Thank you for your interest in our program. Recruitment for 2022 will be held virtually as a means of ensuring an equitable experience for all applicants. The success of our past two virtual recruitment seasons give us confidence that we will be able to effectively communicate to you the wonderful culture of our program.

Our experiences over the past two years have shown us that an optimal virtual interview experience requires limiting the amount of time an applicant must spend on their computers during an interview day. We have therefore developed content (both in text and video form) about all aspects of our program for you to review at your leisure. This allows us to focus the majority of the online aspect of the interview day on meeting residents, faculty, and program leadership. Please review the content on the website to learn as much as you can about the program prior to your interview day. We wish everyone the best during this recruitment season.

Invitations will begin to be sent on October 28. We guarantee enough interview positions for all invited applicants. If you anticipate interviewing with us, please note our interview dates will be:

  • Friday, December 2, 2022

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We only accept candidates through ERAS.

  • The supplemental ERAS application is not required. If a candidate wishes to complete the supplemental application they should do so; however, candidates will not be penalized if they choose not to complete the supplemental application.

  • Please submit all application materials by September 30, 2022.

  • In addition to your Dean's Letter (MSPE), we require three letters of recommendation (preferably one from the Department of Medicine). Applicants should also have engaged in significant direct clinical work (either as a student or in practice) within three years of applying.

  • We will notify you by e-mail by mid-November.

  • You still need to apply through ERAS and must be certified via ECFMG.

  • Certainly, prior clinical experience in the United States is preferred.  However, candidates can be accepted into the program without previous U.S. clinical training.

  • We do not have a minimum score requirement. We engage in holistic review, and every application is considered on an individual basis.

  • The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine supports the use of the ECFMG sponsored J-1 for clinical trainees.  We do not offer H-1B1 visas, except to foreign nationals who are graduates of U.S. medical schools.

  • No. Due to the unique longitudinal curriculum, all trainees can only enter our program in the PGY1 position.

  • Yes, we have limited preliminary positions each year. Usually these are for residents who go on to training at Hopkins with neurology, radiology, radiation oncology, ophthalmology and dermatology.

  • Yes, residents in our Physician Scientist Pathway (PSP) may choose to use the two-year research pathway. However, they are not required to do so and do not need to inform us of this decision before joining us. Of note, our PSP has a different NRMP number; applicants may choose to apply to both the categorical and PSP if they have an interest in exploring both. Please visit the Physician Scientist Program page for more information on applying to this program through the match.

  • Yes, we have a unique Urban Health Primary Care Track. Applicants may choose to apply to both the categorical and Urban Health tracks if they have an interest in exploring both. The urban health track is a different NRMP number and includes a different interview experience from categorical to learn more about the curriculum.

  • Yes. We have an innovative combined internal medicine - pediatrics residency program

  • For March 2023 match, we will be conducting interviews in December.

  • Our Categorical Program NRMP number is: 1242140C0.

  • The undersigned programs have each agreed to the principles and rules outlined below that adhere to and go beyond the National Resident Match Program (NRMP) rules and Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine (APDIM)/ Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM) statement on post interview communication. We encourage applicants to submit a rank list that reflects only their desire to enroll in programs and not be swayed by post interview communications that can be misleading. By signing on to this statement, we commit to the following:


    Post Interview Communications are any outreach directed at one or a few applicants that is intended to signify special or competitive standing by the program, which – while flattering to some – is non-binding, against the spirit of a pressure-free match, and is generally intended to influence a candidate’s rank list. All outreach and messaging from programs to applicants should be available to every applicant or applicant group to decrease the ‘gaming’ or pressurizing of the system.


    • The undersigned programs will not engage in individualized, program-initiated post-interview communication.
    • The policy outlined below will apply to all of our medicine residencies, including combined (e.g., med-peds) residencies and specific tracks within the main residency.
    • The undersigned programs are deeply committed to recruiting a diverse workforce, including under-represented in Medicine (URiM) physicians and those with specific and advanced career interests, such as physician scientists or primary care. While well-intentioned, independent recruitment efforts of specific subsets of applicants have the potential to undermine efforts to consistently apply the policy outlined below. Thus, the policy below also applies to any URiM, physician-scientist, or other special group recruitment.
    • All individuals participating in the recruitment process (faculty, residents, coordinators etc.) will be responsible for adhering to these rules. While all of these participants are happy to answer any questions, they will not signify ranking preference or standing.

    Program Communication Policy

    • We will respect the integrity, confidentiality, and autonomy of applicants in the interview and ranking process.
    • We will be precise and honest in our communications with applicants. We will not use misleading language.
    • We will not make any statements about an applicant’s likelihood to match in our programs. Specifically, we will not use terms such as "ranked to match" or the so-called "lock" position. We will not reach out to selected applicants with coded language implying their rank position or that their reply back to the program will be expected.
    • Programs may send out update emails as long as the same content goes to all applicants or all applicants within a specific group (i.e., an email specific to URiM applicants can go to all applicants who identify as URiM).
    • Post-interview communications from any program representative will be limited to applicant request-driven requests and responses. Factual information (e.g., program updates) can be sent to all applicants. Any program initiated informational outreach that is done by faculty or residents will be available to all applicants or all applicants with a specific group (i.e., all URiM applicants). Program representatives (or anyone perceived to represent the program) will not make unsolicited phone calls, send unsolicited e-mails, or engage in other forms of unsolicited individualized communication to applicants.
    • Any post-interview events must be open to all applicants or all applicants within a specific group (i.e., a diversity event or physician scientist event). It should be clear that participation in such events is voluntary and that attendance will not be taken.

    Applicant Communication Overview

    • Applicants are welcome to e-mail the program residents, faculty or leadership with any questions about the program (e.g. number of required months of ICU experience; availability of opportunities for community service, etc.) and can expect an individual response, but these responses cannot indicate or hint at an applicant’s likelihood to match in the program.
    • Applicants are not obliged to reply to any communications from our programs, and a lack of response will not impact their status, as post-interview communication has no impact on rank decisions.
    • We strongly discourage routine thank you notes or e-mails from interviewed applicants. Such communications will not routinely receive a reply.
    • If an applicant feels that an undersigned program may have violated this policy, they are encouraged to bring this up with their Dean’s Office.

    We congratulate you on your decision to pursue the wonderful and varied specialty of internal medicine, and assure you that our collective intention is to train you all to be exceptional, productive and satisfied physicians.
