Individuals with exceptional qualifications who aspire to
thrive in the areas articulated by our mission, vision, and educational
philosophy are invited to apply. The
University of Colorado Otolaryngology Residency Program participates in the
National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) through the Electronic Residency
Application System (ERAS), a centralized electronic application service that
distributes an online application and supporting documents to residency
programs. The deadline for applications
is October 1st.
Two separate training tracks that are offered each year:
- The Core Residency Track is a five-year training program
which includes a four month research block.
Three positions are available through this track annually.
- The T32 Research Track is a seven-year training program
which includes a 24 month research experience. One position is available
through this track annually.
When we invite applicants for interviews, the review
committee evaluates every aspect of the application. We do not have a cut-off screening score for
the USMLE Step 1. Instead, we try to
focus on aspects of the application that indicate potential for success as well
as fit for our program. We prefer applicants
who are ambitious, insightful, conscientious and resourceful.
Interview invitations for both tracks are emailed during the
third or fourth week of October.
Although candidates may apply for both tracks, applicants will only be
interviewed for one track. Interviews in 2019 will be held the first three Thursdays in December. Dates are scheduled on a first-come
first-served basis, with a wait list after spots are filled.
Residents in our program must be a U.S. citizen, lawful
permanent resident, refugee, asylee, or possess the appropriate documentation
to legally train at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The department follows Graduate Medical
Education (GME) requirements for application.
