Family Medicine Residency Application Process
How to Apply
Mercy Memorial Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program will only accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Paper applications will not be accepted.
Mercy Memorial Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and accepts applications only through the Electronic Residency Application Service Program (ERAS). You must contact your medical school for ensuring delivery of your application, transcript, and Dean’s letters and faculty recommendations to our program via the internet.

During interviews, applicants will have an opportunity to meet with our Program Director, faculty and staff. At this time, our institution does not sponsor visas.
Please note that the deadline for applying through ERAS is December 31, 2012.
