How to Apply

The Johns Hopkins Bayview Internal Medicine Residency Program accepts applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We do not accept any information submitted outside of ERAS.

For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program will be participating in the supplemental ERAS application offered through the AAMC's ERAS program. Applicants will be required to complete the MyERAS application, but participation in the supplemental ERAS application is optional.

For information during the application process and support during the interviewing season, please email us at [email protected].

To apply for the program, please submit the following documents through ERAS:

  • ERAS application
  • USMLE Step 1 score (see below)
  • Medical school transcript
  • Personal statement
  • 3 or 4 letters of recommendation
  • MSPE (Dean's letter)

Residents accepted into the program will need to successfully complete both parts of USMLE Step 2 to start the program. We strongly encourage applicants to take both parts of USMLE Step 2 before March 1 to permit reporting of scores before the start of orientation in late June. Reporting of USMLE scores can take approximately 8 weeks.

With respect to time away from training, please note that the ABIM has specific requirements regarding the length of training necessary to sit for the Boards. No more than three months in the 36 months can be used for vacation, illness or parental leave.

To address this requirement, while also understanding that residents may require leave during training (e.g. parental leave), we have designed an elective rotation that—with appropriate planning and prior approval by the program director—would allow a resident to participate in a program of self-directed learning that will be considered part of the 36 months of full-time medical residency education required by the ABIM. In this way, a resident could receive credit for a self-study elective (for example, while on parental leave) even though the resident cannot participate in hospital-related activities. If this elective is successfully completed, the resident would not have to extend training beyond the usual 36 consecutive month period.
