APPLICATION FOR RESIDENCY

Residency Selection Process

The Department of Dermatology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and uses the American Association of Medical College's (AAMC) Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) as the primary source of resident applicants.

We are open to the ABD's Investigative Training Track and encourage those residents interested in a research career to apply to our program. Please be sure to mention this as well as the potential fit with our broader medical center's research and resources in your personal statement.
 

If you have a particular special interest in Vanderbilt University Medical Center or Nashville, Tennessee for personal or professional reasons, please be sure to include that information in your personal statement.
