If You Are Selected
Applicant interviews are usually scheduled in November and December and will be conducted virtually. Ten residents per year are accepted through the National Resident Matching Program for the Spokane program, and two residents are accepted for the rural program in Colville, WA. You may apply to one or both of these programs.
We use your applications, transcripts, personal statements and letters of recommendation to select individuals to interview, whose goals and interests seem compatible with our medical residency programs.
Please apply early in September (when ERAS opens) to allow ample time to schedule interviews. We review applications immediately upon their transmittal through ERAS. Encourage those writing your letters of recommendation to send them early enough to your Dean’s Office that they can be transmitted before the middle of October.
Family Medicine Residency uses the following inclusion criteria to screen ERAS applicants invited to interviews. These criteria are necessary to allow candidates to successfully gain a license to practice in Washington State, increase the likelihood of success passing the AFMB Certification Exam, and ensure their ability to qualify for equal benefits with Providence Medical Group (our resident employer). Only those applicants who possess ALL of the following criteria will be offered an invitation to interview with our program:
- US Citizen (FMRS is unable to support J-1 Visa sponsorship at this time)
- Non-US Medical School must be ECFME certified
- Minimum pass of all clerkships, including shelf copy testing (typically 2 or more failures will exclude from invitation)
- Minimum pass of USMLE Steps 1&2, and/or COMLEX 1&2 – no more than 1 fail
- Less than 2 years out of medical school
- No felonies
