Applications for residency positions are accepted only through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), and the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS).
All applications submitted by the deadline are reviewed by our resident selection committee, comprised of several of the Washington University Division of Dermatology faculty. Please include three letters of recommendation with your application. We recommend at least one letter from a dermatology faculty member.
We do not exclude applications based on USMLE scores or other criteria. USMLE Step 2 (neither CK nor CS) is not required to apply.
The Division of Dermatology is committed to providing a diverse and inclusive learning environment and encourages applications from students who are underrepresented in medicine, including individuals whose personal characteristics such as race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, health condition or disability place them at risk for conscious or unconscious bias or discrimination.
Additional Application Information for Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP)
Eligible applicants include graduates with a combined MD-PhD degree or an MD degree and a strong record of basic science research experience.
Applicants will be required to apply through ERAS to the Barnes-Jewish Hospital/Washington University Dermatology program and the Barnes-Jewish Hospital/Washington University Internal Medicine-Preliminary program and submit the application for the Physician Scientist Training Program.
Applicants interested in this program should apply for the Dermatology Physician Scientist track within ERAS.
If you are applying as a physician-scientist, one of your three letters of recommendation must be from your laboratory mentor.
