Apply to Our Dallas General Surgery Residency Program

Our Postgraduate Training Program in General Surgery participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and operates in accordance with ACGME policies. As such, the program will select among eligible applicants on the basis of preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills, and personal qualities such as leadership, motivation, and integrity. We do not discriminate with regard to gender, race, age, religion, color, national origin, or disability.

The General Surgery Residency participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) for our three categorical positions and three preliminary positions. Unsolicited applications will not be accepted outside of ERAS.

All applicants must be graduates of a medical school accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA), or equivalent. We do accept Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certified International Medical Graduates seeking J-1 visa status (we do not support other visas at this time). We expect applicants to have completed undergraduate medical training within the last 2 years and to have passed USMLE Steps 1 and 2 on the first attempt.

Complete applications will be reviewed through November 1st. An application is considered complete when we have received all of the following:

  • Completed ERAS application
  • Personal statement
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Medical school transcript
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) or Dean’s Letter
  • USMLE Step 1 and 2 Score Reports
