Upstate Medical University participates in the National Resident Matching Program, Inc. All appointments are made subject to the provisions of that organization. We select resident applicants on the basis of interviews and review of records. Each residency appointment is renewed annually based upon an assessment of the resident's performance. The resident is appointed as a clinical assistant instructor, classified as a temporary employee and subject to the terms, rights and responsibilities of current negotiated agreements between the State of New York and the United University Professions.
Like most of the other Pediatric Residency Programs across the country, we only accept first year residency applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). You can find more out about ERAS through their web site. We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). For all applicants interviews are essential and our interview season runs from the beginning of November through Mid-January. Applicants who are selected for an interview will be invited to come and meet our excellent faculty, and spend some time with our wonderful residents on your interview day. Since we are only able about invite about one-tenth of those who initially apply, every effort should be made to ensure than an application is complete prior to applying.
