Application Process

Thank you for your interest in our Anesthesiology Residency Program. We are thrilled that you are considering the University of Florida for your next step in training.

The application deadline is December 31 each year for positions that begin on July 1 the following year.

To apply, you must sign up and participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

Your ERAS application should include:

Resident getting hands-on training
  • 3 letters of reference
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (aka Dean’s letter)
  • Personal Statement
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Full Medical School Transcript
  • USMLE Scores

Please note that results from USMLE Step I are needed. Although there is no defined cut-off for performance on USMLE 1, our low-end average USMLE Step 1 score for successful applicants is a 220.

Results from both Step I and II are needed prior to the end of the interview season. We do accept International Medical Graduates, however we do not sponsor H-1 or J-1 visas.

Paper applications will not be accepted.

Prior clinical training is not required for our residency program. We consider every application. Our Match Coordinator and Selection Committee will review all applications individually. It is very important for your file to be as complete as possible for their review.

A personal email to interview is sent to you upon acceptance. We interview October through January on selected Thursdays.

Competitive applicants must have outstanding recommendations and academic credentials.

Applicants who have substantial research experience, wish to continue conducting research during residency, and are interested in a career in academic medicine should look into our Gravenstein Scholar Program.

Best wishes as you begin your residency search. We hope to hear from you!
