Admission Requirements

The Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program at Indiana University School of Medicine offers 10 intern positions through the National Resident Matching Program.

To be selected for an interview, candidates must complete an application through the electronic residency application service by the October 1 deadline, and step 2 scores must be available prior to ranking in mid-February.

We adhere to all APGO/CREOG residency application recommendations. 

Post-graduate cut off of two years or less is preferred, but not required.

There is no minimum U.S. Medical Licensing Exam score required, but applicants must pass on the first attempt.

An obstetrics chair letter is not required; however, at least one of the three required letters should be from an OB-GYN.

Each application is reviewed once it is completed and a decision is made whether to offer the candidate an invitation to interview.
