Upstate Medical University participates in the National Resident Matching Program, Inc. All appointments are made subject to the provisions of that organization. We perform a holistic review of applications, and applicants are selected for interview during this process.
Our interview season runs from the end of October through Mid-January. For the 2023-24 interview season, all interviews will be conducted virtually. Applicants who are selected for an interview will be invited to a virtual social hour with residents the night before their interview. On interview day you will meet with the program directors, chair, faculty, and chief residents. Since we are only able to invite about one-tenth of those who initially apply, every effort should be made to ensure that an application is complete prior to applying.
Each resident's appointment is renewed annually based upon an assessment of the resident's performance. Residents are appointed at the level of 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.
New York State 12-Week Rule
New York State has ruled that students who attend international medical schools are no longer eligible to do residency if they are not US citizens and have done more than 12 weeks of clerkships or medical school electives outside of the country their medical school is in. This only includes rotations that counted towards the medical degree. There is a list of International Medical Schools that this rule does NOT apply to at this link (https://op.nysed.gov/professions/physicians/license-requirements) under the Education Requirements heading.
