The General Surgery Residency program at IU School of Medicine offers seven interviews from November to January of each academic year. The interview offers for general surgery will not be released to chosen applicants until the recommended window pre-determined by the Association of Program Directors in Surgery (APDS) Task Force for General Surgery Application Review. This window runs from Wednesday, October 26th, 2022 through Tuesday, November 1st, 2022. We will post on our website and on social media (Twitter/Instagram: @iu_surgery) which date within the APDS-approved window to extend our first wave of interviews.
Interviews are extended after the General Surgery Education Leadership team reviews the Medical Student Performance Evaluations (MSPEs) released in the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) in October. The program allows 48 hours for applicants to accept/reject an interview offer. Questions about the application process can be directed to Brianne Nickel, MA, C-TAGME.
New for the 2023 ERAS® Cycle
For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will be participating in the supplemental ERAS application offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants will be required to complete the MyERAS application, but note that participation in the supplemental ERAS application is optional.
The General Surgery Residency Program is also working with SurgWise® to complete a situational judgment test. You will be notified of our request to participate after an initial review of applicants. Situational Judgment Tests (SJTs) have been proven to provide recruitment teams with holistic reviews of applicants, removing biases, and using all data points provided to determine the true potential of the surgery applicant.
