The UAMS Department of Internal Medicine participates in the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS), developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges for its Categorical Internal Medicine and Combined Medicine/Pediatrics programs.

Please contact the Dean’s Office at your Medical School for application information. If you are an International Medical Graduate, please contact the ECFMG at the address listed below. They will provide you with the application materials needed to apply to either of these two programs.
