THE NRMP Matching Process at Eisenhower Health

NRMP Program Code 1485149F0

 

Eisenhower Health participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) to provide the opportunity for applicants to consider selection options. The program director(s) and staff evaluate the qualifications of all applicants to the programs before deciding who will be offered positions.

Individuals requesting application information from the fellowship programs are directed to the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applicants should submit their application with their required letters of recommendation, transcripts, and dean’s letters through ERAS for first year positions.

Eisenhower Health accepts the universal application and requires all materials to be submitted in full through ERAS before an interview may be scheduled.  We will not accept any paper or emailed applications.  Additionally, NO Visas will be sponsored.

The deadline for applications is August 15th.

Other requirements:

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal statement of interest in pulmonary diseases (this should not exceed 550 words and should clearly describe and highlight your academic and/or career goals. You may also showcase your background, talents and experiences and how you plan to use them in the field of pulmonary disease.
  • A copy of a valid ECFMG Certificate (International Graduates only)
  • A copy of the USMLE or COMPLEX-USA Transcript
  • A copy of proof of citizenship (US Passport, Green Card or J-1 Visa)
  • A copy of a valid, or be eligible for an unrestricted California Medical License (for applicants residing outside of California, this can be submitted no later than May 1 prior to starting on July 1.
  • A copy of Board Exam Certificate in Internal Medicine (if available)

The program director(s) and recruiting team members determine who will be invited to interview. Interviews are scheduled weekly from mid-September through October. Informational program packets are distributed during the interviews. The interview team members then submit their ratings and collectively prepare a rank order of candidates. The designated staff person then enters the ranking list prior to the submission deadline.

As soon as the match results are received and are appropriate to release, the results are shared with each program director and letters of appointment are mailed and e-mailed to each new fellow.

Confidentiality

All information submitted to the NRMP on the rank order lists is confidential. It will not be released or revealed in any manner that permits individual identification of either applicants or programs during the process.

Fellowships

Three fellowship positions are filled each year. The pulmonary fellows will be exposed to patients with a full spectrum of pulmonary disease, and faculty members will provide the training and supervision needed.

Multiple opportunities are available to participate in retrospective and prospective clinical investigations, as well as numerous case series and case presentation. Furthermore, Southern California has one of the most concentrated research communities in the nation with tons of collaboration in the scientific community between Eisenhower Health and other world-class research institutions just beyond our campus boundaries.

Our fellows are highly encouraged to present their work on the local, national or international stage. Attendance at various conferences throughout the year are strongly supported. GME funds are provided to each fellow to assist with the costs associated with travel and presentations.
