Application Information

Neurology Residency Application

Applications can be submitted through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) ERAS begins taking applications in August. Our NRMP Code is 1256180A0 and this is a 3-year, advanced program named Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School Program.

We accept applications only through ERAS. We suggest that all of your application materials are submitted through ERAS by October 15th. The absolute deadline for completed applications is the 15th of November, although earlier applications are given first priority.

In addition to all of the items requested in the ERAS application, to be considered, International Medical Graduates must
1. possess an ECFMG certificate by the time applications are reviewed,
2. have been active in the practice of medicine (either as a medical student or a resident or independent practitioner) within the last 2 years,
3. have passed the USMLE steps 1 and 2, and
4. have at least two months of U.S. clinical experience with patient responsibility, with letters of recommendation from those rotations. A U.S. hospital observership is not considered U.S. clinical experience.

Our Neurology program is advanced, and applicants must apply separately for a preliminary/transitional position in Medicine. There is a joint Advanced Preliminary Neurology program with the Department of Medicine which gives candidates the opportunity to be chosen for internship slots at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. In addition, applicants are still able to match into the regular preliminary Medicine program at BIDMC. Applicants wishing to complete their preliminary year at BIDMC should apply to, and submit rank lists for both medicine programs.
