From the Program Director
Our program receives a large number of application inquiries, so we will not be able to interview all of the qualified individuals. We will give priority in consideration to persons who are currently medical students graduating in 2016 or 2017; who are currently interns in a transitional or other specialty residency program; who are international medical school graduates (IMGs) and have passed the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 3; or who are state licensed physicians who have decided to pursue training in pathology. Please note, IMGs must also have qualified for entry into a California residency program (current ECGMG certificate and evaluation status letter from the Medical Board of California), and have a current visa status allowing residency employment. The USMLE Step 3 examination is especially important for individuals who have not practiced clinical medicine in the past 3 years.
We look forward to reviewing your application. We will accept applications until December 1, 2016 for a residency position beginning on July 1, 2017. Interviews of applicants will be scheduled starting in November 2016 through January 2017.
Thank you again for interest in our residency program.
