Applicants must be:

  • Graduates of an LCME accredited medical school
  • International Medical Graduates (IMG) with a current ECFMG certification

We do NOT offer the clinical year, hence all applicants must  have completed at least one clinical year in an ACGME-accredited residency training program.

A personal interview is required, which will give the applicant an opportunity to meet the faculty/staff in the department. Please note that all interviews are currently being conducted via Zoom. 

Interviews are by invitation only. Once the application is completed, the candidate will be invited by phone or e-mail to schedule an interview date.

Preference is given to civilian candidates who are likely to remain in the Appalachian region or other underserved rural areas.
