Minimum Application Requirements

The minimum requirements to be considered for our residency program are listed below for your convenience.

PGY-1 Applicants

We require that all PGY-1 applicants apply through ERAS. As part of your ERAS application, you need to submit a copy of your USMLE or COMLEX transcript. You need to have passed Part I of the USMLE or COMLEX exam in order to apply and Part II prior to match. A maximum of one (1) fail on any part of the USMLE (Pt I, Pt II CK & CS) or COMLEX (Pt I, Pt II CE & PE) examinations will be allowed and scores passing and above will be considered.

All applicants not currently in a formal ACGME accredited program need to have graduated from medical school within two years of the start of residency. International students/graduates must have completed all of their clinical rotations in the U.S., sponsored by a medical school, hospital or residency program in order to be considered for an interview. The formal rotations must include documented hands-on patient care, including presenting patients, assessing histories and performing physical examinations, as well as other tasks assigned under the supervision of a U.S. licensed attending physician. The program does not sponsor or accept VISAs; U.S. citizens and green-card holders only will be accepted for consideration.

PGY-2 or PGY-3 Transfers

In the case of open PGY-2 or PGY-3 positions, consideration will be given to physicians with post-graduate training in an approved U.S. residency program who meet sufficient advanced placement requirements.

St. Luke’s Family Medicine Residency is an equal employment opportunity program.

Tobacco-free Hiring Practice

To foster a healthier workforce, as well as to demonstrate to our patients and the community our strong commitment to health and wellness, as of Jan. 1, 2011, St. Luke’s Hospital only hires tobacco-free employees. Our application asks about the use of tobacco and nicotine replacement, and candidates will be screened for nicotine before they are hired.

Applicants who declare use or screen positive for nicotine may reapply for a position after they have been tobacco/nicotine-free for 90 days.

Flu Shot Policy

Receiving a flu vaccine is required for all St. Luke’s Hospital employees hired after Oct. 1, 2013. This policy is designed to protect our patients as well as our employees, families and the communities where we work and live. Medical and religious exemptions and personal declinations will be granted with proper documentation. However, anyone not receiving the flu vaccine will be required to wear an approved mask when working at our hospital, according to the masking policy.
