Admission & Application

"One of the most remarkable aspects of Montefiore is the amount of support and encouragement the faculty and staff provide for the residents. It was clear to me that educating residents to become excellent physicians was the top priority of the faculty."

Michelle Cleeves, Residency Program Graduate
Clinical Educator, University of Colorado

Application Deadline 

Applications are accepted through December 1st of the year prior to matriculation. You must apply through ERAS. Our programs are listed under Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Moses and Weiler campuses).

National Resident Matching Program 

The Montefiore-Einstein Internal Medicine Residency Programs participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

NRMP numbers are as follows:

  • Medicine – Three-Year Categorical Residency, 38 positions: 3153140C0++
  • Medicine – Primary Care/Social Internal Medicine, 10 positions: 3153140M0


Applicants will be considered for an interview on the basis of their overall academic record and clinical performance. There are no USMLE cut-off scores, although higher scores are more favorably considered. All parts of USMLE Step 2 must be passed on the first attempt.

Interviews run from November through January on a rolling basis, and are by invitation only. Every effort is made to accommodate applicants' schedules.

International Applicants 

Applications from international medical graduates are selectively considered. A medical degree obtained within 3 years of application with evidence of continued clinical work and/or productive scholarly/research activity is required.  Experience in the US medical system is not required but is preferred. ECFMG certification is not required at the time of application, but must be completed by the time of submitting a rank list.

Visa Sponsorship 

Montefiore Medical Center sponsors J-1 and H-1B visas. For sponsorship, you must hold valid ECFMG certification by March 1st of the year you are applying for training.
