Admission Information

How to apply

Candidates should apply online through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) beginning September 15. Please note the following program number for the application: 3800777060 - Occupational Medicine Residency and 3800721041 - Preventive Medicine Residency. Please refer to the admission requirements below before applying.

Applicants interested in possible off-cycle admissions may contact Jeanne Rozzo, the program coordinator, at for availability.


Applicants for the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Residency must possess an MD degree from an LCME accredited medical school within the United States, Puerto Rico or Canada, or hold a DO degree from an AOA accredited school of osteopathy, or hold an ECFMG certificate which will be valid on the day training begins. Graduates of Canadian schools must hold an LMCC Certificate.

We do not offer the clinical year. All applicants must have completed at least one clinical year (and preferably have completed clinical training) in an ACGME-accredited residency training program. Please note that AOA-accredited programs, clinical externships, clinical research, and training outside of the United States will not meet this requirement.

Applicants must have obtained a passing grade on the USMLE Steps 1, 2, and 3 or COMLEX Parts 1, 2, and 3 examination activities prior to admission.

Offers of employment are contingent upon the individual passing the necessary background check. The university will be conducting criminal background checks on all new hires, including residents. Candidates will be sent a consent form allowing us to do the background check with the packet of GME information in the spring. A series of in-person interviews is required of all finalists.


Please contact the program coordinator, Jeanne Rozzo, at or (303)724-9755 with questions regarding the program.
