Residency Selection Process

The Department of Dermatology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and uses the American Association of Medical College's (AAMC) Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) as the primary source of resident applicants.

We are open to the ABD's Investigative Training Track and encourage those residents interested in a research career to apply to our program. Please be sure to mention this as well as the potential fit with our broader medical center's research and resources in your personal statement.

Application Deadline:  November 1

Interview Invitations sent through ERAS:  Mid-November (with the exception of research)
