  • Minimum COMLEX Level 1 score of 450 (on first attempt)
  • Less than five years since medical school graduation

THE NRMP Matching Process at Eisenhower Health

NRMP Program Code 1485120C0

Applicants requesting application information from the residency programs are directed to the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applicants submit their application with their required letters of recommendation, transcripts, and MSPE through ERAS for first-year positions.

Eisenhower Health accepts the universal application and requires all materials to be submitted in full before an interview may be scheduled.

The deadline for applications is November 15.

Program directors and recruiting team members determine who will be invited to interview. Interviews are scheduled weekly from mid-October through mid-December. 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 Program Director then enters a final rank list prior to the submission deadline.

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.
