How to Apply

Each year, the Triple Board Residency Program offers PGY-1 positions. All positions are filled through the National Resident Matching Program and applications are accepted only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)®, which transmits residency applications, letters of recommendation, dean's letters, transcripts, and other supporting credentials to residency program directors.

Applications must be received by the Residency Training Office by December 15 of the year prior to the scheduled starting of PGY-1 year.

Required application materials to be submitted to ERAS include:

  • ERAS online application form
  • Personal Statement (please limit to one page)
  • Dean's letter
  • Medical school transcript
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Curriculum vitae
  • USMLE score reports
  • ECFMG certificate, if applicable

International Medical Graduate Requirements

Applications will only be accepted through ERAS. International Medical Graduates should apply through the ECFMG office - see instructions at or contact the ECFMG office for further information.

In general, most of the international medical graduates we interview meet the following requirements:

  • Green card, J-1 visa (not sponsored) or documentation of US citizenship
  • Valid ECFMG certificate with clinical skills assessment certification
  • Evidence of a minimum of one year of clinical experience in the United States including two letters of recommendation from academic physicians with whom you have worked

Interview Process

We conduct two-day interviews: Mondays for adult and child psychiatry and Tuesdays for pediatrics. Interviews are scheduled from November 1 through January 15. We encourage early interviews as the calendar fills up quickly, particularly during December and January. We arrange for nearby complimentary hotel accommodations for one night, and the second night is at the applicant's own expense.

The University of Utah School of Medicine does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, age, religion, color, national origin, disability or veteran's status.

Medical Student Elective

An elective rotation is not required, but is encouraged. An elective rotation is a great way to ascertain whether or not the program is a good fit. Also, a rotation allows for close interaction with residents and faculty, providing a great opportunity for networking and letters of recommendation.

Rotations must be scheduled well in advance with the University of Utah School of Medicine and the Triple Board Training Program. An application must be submitted in writing or via email. For more information, contact the following:
