2023-24 Interview Season

Applications will be accepted only through ERAS - the Electronic Residency Application Service. All positions will be filled through the NRMP - National Residency Matching Program. Traditionally, all of our positions fill and we do not have available positions post-Match.

Supplemental ERAS Application

  • For the 2023 ERAS cycle, our program will be collecting and reviewing data from applicants' supplemental ERAS application. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement; completion of the supplemental ERAS application is optional.
  • The supplemental ERAS application is designed to help applicants share more information about themselves and assist our program in finding applicants that fit our program's setting and mission.
  • The supplemental ERAS application provides:
    • geographic preferences (by division and by urban or rural setting);
    • information about an applicant's most meaningful experiences and other impactful life events, if applicable; and
    • program signals.


  • All interviews are conducted virtually. We have designed an interview day we believe best captures the personal feel of our program so you can discover the best fit learning environment for yourself.
  • Interviews begin in late October and extend through mid-January.
  • Invitations are extended after thorough review of each application.
  • We use third party software to manage our interview scheduling.

After matching, applicants must:

  • Undergo a criminal background check and pre-employment drug screening
  • Submit to a health screening and provide necessary immunization documentation
  • Submit proof of successful medical school graduation
  • Meet requirements to obtain a State of Oregon training license
  • Provide updated USMLE/COMLEX results
