We use the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) to electronically accept residency applications, letters of recommendations, dean’s letters, transcripts and other credentials directly from your medical school.
Deadline for applications is November 1.
In order to be considered for the program, applicants must submit the following materials:
- Completed ERAS application
- Letter from medical school dean
- Medical school transcript
- Three to four letters of recommendation
- Step 1 and Step 2 USMLE scores – Graduates must have a 220 or above on their USMLEs and have passed each on their first attempt
Interview day for potential residents begins with breakfast and a presentation by the program director and faculty members. Half of the candidates tour the hospital while the other half interview individually with members of the selection committee.
Each candidate’s interview lasts approximately one hour. The department provides lunch, during which candidates have the opportunity to meet our current residents.
The evening prior to the interviews, a dinner is held in a current resident’s home.

Medical Student Opportunities
Elective rotations are available to fourth-year medical students that are interested in pursuing a residency at Baylor University Medical Center. Interested allopathic or osteopathic students from accredited institutions may apply through the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities application service (VSLO).
Visiting electives may be offered in two or four week rotations from July through January. Students can begin viewing the courses and dates being offered, prerequisites, and institutional requirements at VSLO starting in March. Applications will be accepted starting April 1.
Baylor University Medical Center is dedicated to training a new generation of healthcare professionals that reflect the diverse communities we serve. To encourage top candidates from underrepresented social groups within the profession of medicine, the Department of Medical Education will annually offer a $1500 scholarship to assist with transportation and housing costs while rotating in Dallas on an approved VSLO elective.
