Application Process

The Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) through the Association of American Medical Colleges. Applications are accepted exclusively through ERAS.


Timeline

  • The application process begins at ERAS as early as two years before a position is desired.
  • In mid-July, applicants can select the U of WA ID program for positions opening one year later (e.g., apply in July 2013 for position beginning July 2014).
  • Applications are downloaded from ERAS July 15th through August 15th (contact the ID fellowship office if you missed the August 15th deadline).

Interviews

After receipt and review of applications, those fellows with competitive applications will be invited to interview.

Interviews are mandatory for fellow applicants who are seriously interested in the program. Interviews are arranged with 6-8 faculty, usually over 1 day. Those applicants invited to interview should indicate potential areas of research interest and/or specific faculty with whom they wish to meet.


Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action

The University of Washington is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. We are strongly committed to increasing the number of minorities entering careers in academic Infectious Diseases and we encourage application by minority candidates to our program.
