How to Apply

Neurology Residency

For specific eligibility requirements, please refer to the GME benefits, requirements and resources page.

Our residency program only accepts applications through the AAMC's Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). ERAS collects the required materials and then transmits these documents from your medical school to our residency program. We do not require any materials beyond the ERAS requirements. The University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville department of internal medicine in Jacksonville also participates in the National Residency Matching Program.

If you are interested in applying for a PGY1 in internal medicine and a PGY2 in neurology, the following required documents must be provided to ERAS:

  • ERAS common application form
  • A personal statement
  • Three current letters of recommendation:
    • One from a neurology physician at your medical school or a neurology physician who has been involved in your education.
    • Two from physicians who are familiar with your work or abilities.
  • Dean's letter (downloaded from your school on November 1st)
  • Official medical school transcript
  • USMLE or COMLEX score report
  • Curriculum vitae

We are an advanced program and offer joint interviews with our internal medicine residency program. If you are interested in both programs, please make sure to check both programs under the tab "Programs" of the ERAS application. Applicants who MATCH with our program are also guaranteed a PGY 1 position in Internal Medicine if they elect to conduct their preliminary year on our campus.

Please do not mail any documents to us unless we request them from you directly.

Neurology Residency - Residents


The deadline for submitting your completed application is December 31st.


Interview invites must be extended from both programs if applying conjointly for internal medicine and neurology programs. Interviews with faculty from both programs will then be scheduled on the same day.

We suggest individuals arrive in Jacksonville the night preceding their interview. This will allow interviewees the time to attend a special welcome reception/dinner, with members from our housestaff, at one of our local restaurants (the exact location will be communicated to all applicants prior to their arrival). Our interview day will begin at 8 a.m. and will end at 3 p.m. The day will include:

  • An introduction by the neurology residency program directors
  • Interviews with internal medicine and neurology faculty
  • Time to meet current residents and faculty
  • Lunch
  • A tour of our hospital
