Application for Residency

You are here

Applications to the Cornell Neurological Surgery Residency Program are accepted solely through the Electronic Residency Application Services (ERAS). Please submit all required documents — such as master application, personal statement, letters of recommendation (4 max), and MSPE — via ERAS only.

The PGY-1 year is now a categorical year of training under the direction of the Neurological Surgery Department. It is no longer necessary to match and interview separately with General Surgery for the PGY-1 Internship year.

We continue to accept applicants with ECFMG certification; however we only accept J-1 Visas.

INTERVIEW DATES:
Interviews for those candidates applying for residency starting in 2018 will be held starting in November 2017.
