The Med-Peds Program only accepts applications through ERAS. The annual deadline to submit an application is January 15. If the applicant is unable to meet this deadline, the residency program director must be contacted.
All applications are carefully reviewed and decisions for interviews are based upon the composite qualifications of the applicant. We do not use any specific USMLE/COMLEX criteria. We do not require USMLE scores for osteopathic students.
Applicants who are invited for an in-person interview can expect to spend one full day at Christiana Care, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. We interview 3-4 applicants each Wednesday and Friday from October 8, 2014 through January 16, 2015.
Three letters of recommendation from persons directly involved with the applicant must be submitted. Letters must include physicians from Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and may include letters from Med-Peds physicians. Letters from the chair(s) of the departments are not mandatory.
