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
Interviews for potential residents are currently conducted “virtually” via Thalamus, a platform that facilitates the comprehensive interviewing process. Interviews are scheduled on Fridays from late October through December (except Thanksgiving and Christmas). Selected candidates are notified via email and requested to schedule an interview date.
Each interview day begins with an orientation of the program, followed by interviews with the program director, department chair and two members of the selection committee. Each candidate will interview for approximately one hour.
A “virtual meet and greet” is hosted by the residents the Thursday evening prior to the interviews. This is open to the candidate and his/her family.

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.
