Application Process

The first step in applying to the Department of Urology must be accomplished by submitting through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)

A complete packet consists of the following documents:

• CV 
• Application 
• Personal statement 
• Three letters of recommendation (one of which should come from your Urology Department Chair or Section Head) 
• Medical school transcript 
• USMLE Step 1 score

The deadline for applications to be considered for review is October 1. 

Our department has a team of urology faculty members who collaborate to screen 300+ applications each interview season. Final recommendations are provided to the Program Directors, Drs. Adam Hittelman and Piruz Motamedinia. Resident selection is based on a consensus of the urology faculty members. 

Resident selection is based on an evaluation of:

• Academic performance in medical school, including a Dean's Letter, grades, awards, AOA membership, class rank if available and score from Part I of the Boards 
• Extracurricular activities and accomplishments 
• Interview and interpersonal skills 
• Personal statement 
• Personal recommendation letters 
• Satisfactory completion or anticipated completion of an accredited school of medicine in the United States or Canada 
• Demonstrated commitment to a career in Urology through scholarly activities and participation in clinical urology activities 

Applicants will also be invited to a formal dinner hosted by the department for the opportunity to meet current residents in the program and learn about the residency experience, living in the New Haven area, as well as other aspects of the residency program. This dinner is optional. 

We accept three trainees per year.
