Application Process, Eligibility, and Interview Dates

Application Overview

We are anticipating our first year of residents to start residency in July 2019. The Rural Track is in the process of seeking accreditation from Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, ACGME. Once the approval is received in October 2018 we will began to accept applicants. The Rexburg Rural Track will participate in the National Resident Matching Program. First-year applicants interested in applying should apply through the Electronic Residency Applications Service, ERAS. Foreign medical school graduates must contact the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates, which will assist them in their ERAS application. The deadline for application is January 1st.
