Prospective Resident Resources

We are very pleased that you are considering WSU GME for the next stage of your professional training. Our goal is to provide residents and fellows with the knowledge and clinical experience they need to become highly skilled physician scholars and leaders.

Application Process

Washington State University Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine’s Graduate Medical Education residency/fellowship programs participate in the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS), developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges. All programs accept only ERAS applications. Please do not send any materials via mail, fax or email. Any documents received outside the ERAS system will not be forwarded to the program. Please refer to the individual program’s website for application requirements.

Foreign Graduates must be certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). Refer to the program specific website for more information regarding visa sponsorship. H1-B visas are not sponsored by WSU residency programs.
