ERAS Application Information

Important: Application Deadline is November 15.

Thank you for your interest in the Thomas Jefferson University Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) Residency Training Program.

We exclusively use Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) for the application process. If you are interested in applying to our program, please contact your medical College Dean's Office for your ERAS information and application packet or visit the ERAS website for more information.

If you are an international medical graduate, please contact your local ECFMG office for more information on ERAS.

Your application and supporting documentation must be received by our office through ERAS no later than November 15. We begin accepting applications in September 1 and urge you to submit your materials as early as possible, as our limited number of interview slots may be all filled prior to the deadline.

Applications received in our office after November 15 will not be considered for our program.

Items required for the ERAS application include:

  • Completed application form
  • Current C.V. clearly explaining any time gaps
  • Medical College Transcript
  • Three letters of recommendation:  at least one letter must be from a PM&R (Rehabilitation Medicine) Physician.
  • Dean's Letter
  • USMLE scores
  • Personal Statement
  • One photograph


Unfortunately, we are unable to interview all the candidates. Interviews are scheduled by invitation only. If invited for an interview, you will receive an email informing you of the time and place.  Interviews generally take place on Wednesdays from late October to mid-January.

Thank you again for your interest in our program. If you need any further information, please contact Ms. Patricia A. Williams, our Thomas Jefferson University Hospital PM&R Residency and Education Coordinator:
