To be considered for a preliminary position, applicants must apply through the Association of American Medical Colleges’ Electronic Residency Application System. The four preliminary positions are in addition to the programs’ six categorical positions. It’s very important to apply to the correct track (categorical vs. preliminary). The program submits two separate rank lists to the National Residency Matching Program and cannot rank candidates who haven’t applied to their program’s track.

Unless you’re dual applying to the Internal Medicine Residency program for a categorical position, please be sure to apply to the preliminary track only if you’re applying to an advance match program. The National Residency Matching Program code for the preliminary track is 1870140P0. Please note that the only difference in the codes for the tracks is the "P" as in prelim or "C" as in categorical.
