Primary Care & Social Internal Medicine Residency

Admission & Application

"My group of co-residents was the greatest aspect of the program. They had various interests but were all social justice minded. The faculty are the next best thing for the same reason. I also appreciated the teaching modalities and balance of social medicine and biomedical teaching."

Bejamin Hayes, 2019 Program Graduate GIM Fellow, Montefiore  

Application Deadline
Applications are accepted through December 1st of the year prior to matriculation. You must apply through ERAS. Our programs are listed under Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Moses and Weiler campuses).

National Resident Matching Program
The Montefiore-Einstein Internal Medicine Residency Programs participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
NRMP numbers are as follows:

Doctors of Osteopathy
We accept DO candidates but they must have taken their USMLE Step 1 and preferably Step 2 by the time of application.

Applicants will be considered for an interview on the basis of their overall academic record and clinical performance. There are no USMLE cut-off scores, although higher scores are more favorably considered. All parts of USMLE Step 2 must be passed on the first attempt.

Interviews run from November through January on a rolling basis, and are by invitation only. Every effort is made to accommodate applicants' schedules.

International Applicants
Applications from international medical graduates are selectively considered. A medical degree obtained within 3 years of application with evidence of continued clinical work and/or productive scholarly/research activity is required. Experience in the US medical system is not required but is preferred. ECFMG certification is not required at the time of application, but must be completed by the time of submitting a rank list.

Visa Sponsorship
Montefiore Medical Center sponsors J-1 and H-1B visas. For sponsorship, you must hold valid ECFMG certification by March 1st of the year you are applying for training.
