How to Apply

The Department of Surgery receives all applications via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applicants should access ERAS either from their school of graduation or from ECFMG.

The deadline for receipt of the completed application to UT Southwestern is December 1 each year. The Resident Selection Committee will review completed files beginning in October. Successful applicants are invited for an interview after review. Interviews are held between October and January.

As it is a requirement of our Surgery residency program to be ACLS certified, successful applicants will be required to obtain ACLS certification prior to orientation for the residency program.
