How to Apply

Applying for OB/GYN Residency

Saint Louis University's OB/GYN residency program consists of 24 residents, six per year. Six positions will be filled for the 2022-23 academic year. All applicants need to apply using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).

How to Apply

Applications are accepted through ERAS only. Emailed or faxed applications will not be reviewed.

The deadline for submission of your ERAS application to be considered for the 2022 Match is October 1, 2021. Early applications are encouraged.

Application Requirements

Your application is considered complete when we have received your ERAS application, personal statement, photo, three letters of recommendation, medical school transcripts, MSPE (Dean's Letter), ECFMG certificate (if applicable) and documentation of national USMLE or COMLEX scores.

We accept both American and foreign medical graduates. There are no minimum scores and clinical experience is not required. We look at the entire application as a whole and invite the best 100 or so candidates out of the 600 or so applications that we receive. While scores are important, so are your transcripts, recommendation letters, personal statement, etc. We will sponsor J-1 visas, but not H-1B visas.


Interviews will be held on October 29, November 12, December 3, December 10, and December 17, 2021 (all Friday mornings).

We will send out our first wave of invitations on October 19, 2021. We will wait 48 hours for applicants to respond to an invite before inviting someone else.
