Bon Secours St. Francis Family Medicine Residency Program participates in the National Residency Matching Program for first-year residency positions. Applications should be made through the ERAS program.

The Residency Program does have minimum requirements. Applicants must:

  • have six months of “hands-on” clinical experience in the United States
  • have three current letters of recommendation from United States physicians

Foreign graduates are welcome to apply, granted that they meet the requirements above. Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor visas.

Applications to the program should include:

  • Personal statement
  • USMLE or COMLEX board scores
  • Transcript
  • Photo
  • Three current letters of recommendation
  • Curriculum Vitae
