The UC Irvine Department of Emergency Medicine's residency program participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We only consider applications submitted through ERAS. Applicant files are reviewed only after all supporting documentation is received. Interviews are by invitation only.

Average statistics for applicants who received an interview invitation from our program in 2016 are:

  • USMLE Step 1: 236
  • USMLE Step 2: 243
  • Number of clerkship honors (out of 6): 2

Notice to applicants: California Medical Board policy requires that all applicants to California residency programs must complete a one-month elective in family medicine during medical school to be licensed in the state. If you do not meet this requirement, you cannot obtain a medical license in California.

All first-year postgraduate appointments are made through the National Resident Matching Program. The deadline for submitting applications is Oct. 15. We encourage you to have a complete application by October 1. Applications must include:

  • Completed ERAS application form
  • Two Standardized Letters of Evaluation (SLOEs)
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE)
  • Medical school transcripts
  • Board Scores — We encourage applicants to have USMLE Step 2 by their interview date (COMLEX will not be considered in place of the USMLE)
  • Personal statement

Interview day: Interviews are scheduled on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from mid-November through January. Interview days begin at 10:30 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. A social event with current residents is held in Long Beach on Tuesday evenings.
