IM Intern Case Report on a Sunny Day in Portland

How to Apply & Application FAQ's 

Applications for internship will be accepted only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) from September 15th to November 1st, 2013. All intern positions will be filled through the National Residency matching program (NRMP). Traditionally all positions fill and we do not have available positions post-Match.
  • Our required application materials are the same as ERAS (Transcript, Dean's Letter, two or more Letters of Recommendation, Departmental/Chair Letter, USMLE Transcript, Personal Statement, etc).
  • Applications for PGY-2 and PGY-3 positions will be accepted (outside of ERAS) if openings arise.  We recommend that interested candidates check with us in late February/early March, as that is when we would begin our recruitment process if openings do become available.
  • We offer career pathways in both Categorical and Primary Care Medicine but have only one match code number (Categorical Program NRMP Code Number: 1599140C0).
  • International graduates must be ECFMG certified at the time their application is submitted, they must have at least one year of clinical experience in the U.S. or in a health care system similar to the U.S. (e.g., Australia, Ireland, and the like), and have graduated from medical school no earlier than 2008. Please note that we do not count externships, observerships, or research work as clinical experience.
