How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program at Mount Sinai Hospital. As part of our commitment to thorough patient care, teaching and research, we look for exceptional and enthusiastic residence applicants. For these applicants, we offer a rich learning environment filled with support, whether in research, education or 24/7 attending physician availability.

Candidates interested in pursuing a first-year appointment in obstetrics and gynecology must file a formal application with the National Resident Matching Program (2501 M Street, NW, Suite 1, Washington, D.C., 20037-1307 / phone: 202-828-0566). Immediately following the National Match, we will send an application for obtaining the Temporary Medical training License, along with instructions on how to register.

All Applicants for Residency Must Meet One of the Following Criteria:

  • Graduate of U.S./Canadian medical school accredited by the Liaison Committee of Medical Education (LCME)
  • Graduate of U.S./Canadian medical school accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA)

    1. Holds current valid certification from Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG); AND
    2. Holds full, unrestricted license or temporary license to practice medicine in the State of Illinois; or has completed Fifth Pathway program provided by an LCME accredited medical school

Please note that the State of Illinois requires any applicant applying for either a permanent or temporary license who has not been in active practice or a medical program for two years to provide documentation of professional capacity.
