Application Information


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.
