Education / Residency / Application Information
In the 2016 Match, we will be offering 26 positions: four categorical (four-year) positions and twenty-two advanced (three-year) positions. We receive 750+ applicants each year . The total program size is 82: 4 PGY-1 positions, 26 CA-1 positions, 26 CA-2 positions, 26 CA-3 positions. Students matching to the advanced positions will do their clinical base years elsewhere (Transitional/Clinical Base year) and begin training with our program on July 1, 2017. Our Residency Interview Committee looks at various criteria in the selection and invitation process. We expect to fill all 26 positions through the Match. Applicants may specify advanced or categorical when they apply through ERAS. Interview offers are not based upon applications to a specific track.
For those seeking an advanced position, the clinical base year include at least six months of clinical rotations during which the resident has responsibility for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with a variety of medical and surgical problems, of which at most one month may involve the administration of anesthesia and one month of pain medicine. Acceptable clinical base experiences include training in internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery or any of their subspecialties, obstetrics and gynecology, neurology, family medicine or any combination of these as approved for residents by the directors of their training programs in anesthesiology. The clinical base year should also include rotations in critical care and emergency medicine, with at least one month, but no more than two months, devoted to each. Other rotations completing the 12 months of broad education should be relevant to the practice of anesthesiology. Training as a fellow in a subspecialty program is not an acceptable clinical base experience.
The Indiana University’s Department of Anesthesia requests that your clinical base year includes two months of Critical Care experience.
We accept applications only through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Our application requirements are the same as the standard ERAS application: the complete application, CV, personal statement, medical student performance evaluation (Dean’s letter), transcript, and three letters of recommendation. We require Step 1 USMLE scores of all applicants. Step 2 may be completed after the application deadline. Successful completion of USMLE Step 1 and of Step 2 CS and CK is required by Indiana University Department of Anesthesiology prior to matriculation.
We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP, “the Match”) and abide by all Match policies. Please note that applicants must register with both NRMP and ERAS to participate in the services of each.
Yes, the couples match is an option on your profile through ERAS.
We require that International Medical Graduates (IMGs) have a valid ECFMG certificate prior to an interview. The preferred Visa option for non-US Citizens is the J-1 Visa sponsored by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). IMGs who seek this type of visa must first apply to the ECFMG for certification. ECFMG offers the USMLE exams and is the sponsoring organization providing assurance to residency programs that candidates meet defined qualifications equivalent to a U.S. medical degree. Dates and deadlines can be found at http://www.ecfmg.org/ .
Expectations for IMG applicants include, among other qualifications, the following.
Current ECFMG certification
US permanent resident
Unrestricted state medical license for this state
