Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible to apply to your program?
For information on residency application requirements and qualifications, including requirements for International Medical Graduates, please visit the UT Southwestern Graduate Medical Education website.

What is required for my application to be considered complete for review?
Applicants must submit the following information through ERAS:

  • Complete application
  • Medical school Dean’s Letter
  • Medical school transcript
  • USMLE Step 1 or COMLEX-USA level 1 score
  • USMLE Step 2 or COMLEX-USA level 2 score
  • Two letters of recommendation (from faculty of your choice; a chair’s letter is accepted but not required)

Will you require a Standardized Letter of Evaluation (SLOE)?
For the 2023 Match, the SLOE is optional. We will accept both SLOE and traditional letters of recommendation.

Do you require a minimum USMLE Step score?
We do not have a minimum USMLE or COMLEX-USA score requirement. While higher scores may help strengthen an application, standardized test scores are used only as a component in our holistic review process.

What kind of resident are you looking for?
We are looking for hard-working individuals who are committed to caring and advocating for the under-resourced women in Dallas County. Even though we have a large program, our residents are a tight-knit family, and they understand the importance of teamwork. Our residents are resilient and compassionate, and they are deeply dedicated to their patients, peers, and families.
