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

Prior to and during the virtual visit for the required personal interview, we encourage applicants to familiarize themselves with Baltimore and the Harriet Lane Residency through our website and during virtual discussions with faculty and residents.

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 residency program and vice versa.
