Thank you for your inquiry about our residency training program in Obstetricsand Gynecology at the Indiana University School of Medicine. The following are the requirements for candidates to be selected for interview:

  • Applications must be through ERAS
  • Application deadline is December 1st
  • Step 2 scores must be available prior to ranking (mid-February)
  • The Obstetrics and Gynecology program offers 10 intern positions through the National Residency Match Program.
  • Post-graduate cut-off of 2 years of less is a preference but not required.
  • There is no minimum score requirement. We review all passing scores.
  • Obstetrics Chairman letter not required; however, at least 1 or the 3 required letters should be from an OBGYN.

The following are the additional requirements specific to applicants who are international medical graduates:

  • Applicants must have ECFMG certification: a) have taken the CSA exam before the date of the interview; and b) have a passing score to the CSA exam results prior to January 31st.
  • Evidence of clinical experience in a US or Canadian hospital is required in which the applicant had direct patient care contact (such as a clerkship during medical school or a postgraduate externship). Observerships are not sufficient to meet this requirement.
