Application Requirements

The University of Kentucky Plastic Surgery Residency Program is now participating in the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) and only accepts electronic applications through ERAS. Contact your medical school or Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) to complete the application. All ERAS materials should be available in your medical school Dean’s office by July or August. The ERAS application includes:

  • Electronic Application
  • USMLE scores, Part I (and Part II if available)
  • Personal Statement
  • Wallet-sized photo
  • Medical School Transcript
  • Documentation of AOA membership (if applicable)
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Documentation of ECFMG and flexscores (for graduates of international medical schools)
  • Dean’s Letter
  • Curriculum vitae

Although United States Medical Licensure Examination transcripts may appear as optional on the ERAS application we require that these scores be included. You will need to request that official transcripts from the National Board of Medical Examiners be mailed to us through ERAS.

International medical graduates will need to contact ECFMG regarding ERAS applications. ECFMG will transmit the application to the University of Kentucky.

All applications must be received by October 13, 2017. Only complete applications will be considered.
