Virtual interviews for our program will occur on select Tuesdays and Thursdays in November and December for applicants invited to interview.
The OHSU EM Residency program will be participating in the Unified Interview Release Date sponsored by the CORDEM County Programs Community of Practice for the 2023-2024 application cycle. Interview Invitation Notifications will be released to select applicants on Wednesday, October 18, 2023 at 6pm EST. Interview scheduling for invited applicants will open Thursday, October 19, 2023 at 6pm EST.
Applicants placed on the waitlist for an interview will be notified throughout the cycle if a space becomes available.
There are so many amazing students who apply to our residency, and although we would love to meet as many as we can, due to the sheer volume of interest, we do limit our invitations to a select group of applicants. We look forward to reviewing your materials. If at any point after the MSPEs are available, you receive a new SLOE, please email the Senior Education Manager, Kim Regner firstname.lastname@example.org
Interview Recording Agreement
Oregon Health & Science University, Emergency Medicine Residency Program wishes to maintain a fair, equitable, and confidential interview process throughout the 2023-2024 recruitment season. Therefore, we guarantee the following:
Oregon Health & Science University, Emergency Medicine Residency Program will neither record nor distribute any part of any interview conducted on a virtual platform (eg, Thalamus, Zoom, WebEx, Skype, etc.). This includes screenshots, still photos, audio recording, and video recording and applies regardless of whether the state in which our institution is located requires only one-party consent.
Likewise, we ask that the candidate agrees to the same to preserve the integrity of the interview process. By accepting the interview, you agree to abide by the following conditions:
The applicant will neither record nor distribute any part of an interview conducted on a virtual platform (eg, Thalamus, ZOOM, WebEx, Skype, etc.). This includes screenshots, still photos, audio recording, and video recording and applies regardless of whether the state in which I am located at the time of the interview requires only one-party consent. If you do not abide by these conditions, you may be deemed ineligible for ranking.
The Emergency Medicine Residency Program at OHSU uses the ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) exclusively. ERAS is available through all medical schools and the ECFMG office.
The following materials must be transmitted to us through ERAS no later than November 1st:
- CAF (Common Application Form)
- Dean's letter
- Medical school transcript
- Up to 4 letters of recommendation (2 letters need to be EM official Standardized Letters of Evaluation (SLOE) *note you can apply with 1 SLOE, but a 2nd will need to be submitted 1 week prior to the NRMP rank list deadline)
- Copy of certified transcript of board scores
- Personal Statement
Any additional materials, including the letter of recommendation from an emergency medicine clerkship, will be accepted through the ERAS after November 1st. Please inform us if a letter of recommendation from your emergency medicine clerkship will be arriving later than November 1st.
After each resident's application is complete, it is reviewed. Competitive candidates will be invited to interview in November and December 2023.
The Emergency Medicine Residency Program at OHSU participates in the National Residency Matching Process. Final selection of candidates who interview at OHSU is made following the interview process with entry to the match scheduled no later than early February.
We encourage early submission of application material. Although this will not guarantee selection for an interview, we tend to have the most scheduling flexibility earliest in the interview season. As research has shown (AEM 2000;7(9):1022-6.) that the date of an interview does not influence the ultimate ranking of the applicant, it is to the applicant's advantage (in regards to greater scheduling flexibility) to submit his/her materials early.
