How to Apply
Thank you for your interest in the Internal Medicine Residency Training Program at the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences. We offer eight categorical positions, beginning July 1, through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP).
Our program is located in Fargo, N.D., the largest city in North Dakota. It is a city known for its safety, quality of life, excellence in school systems, three universities, a low crime rate and low cost of living.
The Department of Internal Medicine utilizes Sanford Health and the Fargo VA Health Care System for its training sites. Sanford Health is a large, multi-specialty group practice with two integrated hospitals committed to excellence in patient care, education and research. Sanford Health is the 13th largest integrated medical group practice in the country and has been acknowledged as one of the top ranked Cancer and Heart Centers in the country. Serving a tri-state area, over 1.5 million patients visit Sanford Health yearly. For nearly a century, Sanford Health has provided state-of-the-art care.
The program is unique in that it is a small university program, which provides individual attention to all residents. The emphasis is to develop skilled internists who can practice in a wide range of settings, from the general internist in a small town to the fellowship trained subspecialist in a multi-specialty practice.
All applications to the Internal Medicine residency program must be submitted through ERAS.
Application deadline for each year is November 1st
- Applicants must pass USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 (CK) on the first attempt.
- Clinical experience or formal professional/graduate education in the US is strongly preferred but not required.
- The Selection Committee reviews the full ERAS application - focusing on the Curriculum Vitae (CV), four reference letters, personal statement, USMLE scores and Medical School Performance Evaluation. To be accepted, applications must be complete by Nov. 1.
- Although there are no minimum scores required candidates with higher scores will be more competitive for the residency.
- You must have been enrolled in medical school, a relevant graduate degree program, a post-graduate residency-training program or have been active in medical practice within the past three years. Graduates of medical schools disapproved by the North Dakota Board of Medical Examiners will not be considered.
- All applicants for licensure in North Dakota who are graduates of foreign medical schools, except the medical schools of Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, are required to have ECFMG certification by February 15, 2018.
- We sponsor J-1 visas.
- All applicants must be fluent in written and spoken English.
If your application meets the UND Internal Medicine Residency criteria, then you will be considered for an interview. Selected candidates will be notified through ERAS by e-mail with an invitation to interview. One on one interviews are scheduled from mid October to mid January. The residency will pay for one night’s lodging expenses (if needed). Candidates typically have dinner with a current resident the evening before the scheduled interview. On the interview day they meet with the Program Director and other interviewing faculty. The interview day is generally concluded with the candidate attending the noon case and core conferences with current residents.
