The Anesthesiology Residency Program accepts applications only through the Electronic Resident Application Service (ERAS) and participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).  Applications will be reviewed once all required documentation has been received. For applications to be considered complete, the following documents are required:

  • Common ERAS application form
  • Personal statement
    • Please use one paragraph of your personal statement to express your interest in our program.
  • USMLE transcript
  • Medical school transcript
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE)
  • A minimum of three letters of recommendation

The deadline for application submission is 10/15/2023. Applications received after this date may be considered, but interviews are subject to availability.

In accordance with guidance from the AAMC, students should signal programs according to interest. Completion of a rotation or research within the department does not substitute for a signal. Applicants that do not signal our program are unlikely to be considered.

Complete applications will be reviewed and selected applicants will be invited for to schedule virtual interview through Thalamus. Applicants not selected for an interview will be notified through ERAS.

We regret that we are unable to reply personally to emails requesting an interview with our program. Communication with applicants will occur through the ERAS and Thalamus platforms.

Residency Pathways

Communication with Residency Applicants

Application Status

Due to the large number of applicants to our training program, the quantity of emails received makes it impossible to provide updates on application status. We work diligently to review applications and deliver decisions as soon as possible. Once a decision has been made on an application, applicants will be notified via electronic communication.

Post Interview Communication

Our interview day is designed to provide applicants with a thorough view of our training program. Interviewees will have multiple opportunities to ask questions of our residents, leadership, faculty, and administrative staff. For questions that may arise after the interview day applicants will receive contact information for program representatives who are more than happy to answer any questions.

The University of Utah Department of Anesthesiology requests that applicants do not send thank you notes or emails. These types of communications will not routinely receive a reply.

Our review committee and program leadership do not commonly reach out to applicants after an interview.
