For Applicants

The Application Process

Applications for the surgical residency program at Sinai Hospital are accepted via ERAS. Submissions may begin when ERAS opens. We value solid academic performance, strong work ethic, versatile interests and friendly personalities. Interviews are offered on a rolling basis so early applications are appreciated.

If you are offered an interview, you will be notified via email by Steph Taylor, residency administrator. For the intern class of 2020-2021, the interview dates are as follows:

  • Tuesday, November 5
  • Tuesday, November 12
  • Tuesday, November 19
  • Tuesday, December 3
  • Tuesday, December 17
  • Tuesday, January 7

We interview approximately 10 candidates on each date and slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. After the interviews, second-look visits are allowed and can be scheduled through Steph Taylor. We accept three categorical residents to our intern class. At this time, we do not have preliminary residents.
