We participate in the couples' match within our own program and with other residency programs in our medical center. DHMC does not discriminate in hiring on the basis of age, sex, race or national origin, disability, or sexual orientation.

  • Transcript
  • USMLE Step 1 score, required for all applicants, including DO's
  • Three letters of recommendation

Interview Days

Upon the approval of the selection committee, we will invite applicants to participate in one of our Interview Days. Alternative dates for interviews will be considered on an individual basis. Our Interview Days are held in October, November and December with a few select dates in early January. Invitations to interview will be sent by email to the address you have provided in ERAS.

In addition to the program requirements mentioned above, our Graduate Medical Education Office has specific institutional eligibility requirements, including information about VISAs.
