How to Apply

The University of Michigan Fellowship Program in Nephrology welcomes applications from individuals who will be board-eligible in Internal Medicine from an American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certified program at the time of matriculation. (Please note that we do not routinely accept applications from those who hold H1B visas.)

Submit Application via ERAS

Applications for the period beginning in July 2020 will be accepted only by using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) beginning in August 2020. Well-qualified individuals will be invited for a virtual interview beginning in early September. Thereafter, invitations for interviews will be made on a rolling basis. 

Required Documents for ERAS Application

  • At least three letters of reference from those who know you well and can speak to your clinical ability, research potential (if applicable), and personal characteristics
  • A personal statement describing your background, and career goals and ambitions
  • Transcript from USMLE
  • ECFMG status report (if applicable)
  • Common application

Virtual Fellowship Interview Day

During the virtual interview day, applicants will get a chance to meet with program leadership, have one-on-one interviews with faculty members, interact with current fellows and fellow applicants using an interactive web-based platform. If internet connectivity is problematic, phone interviews can be scheduled.

NRMP Medical Specialties Matching Program (MSMP)

The University of Michigan Nephrology Training Program participates in the NRMP-sponsored match program. Interviewed applicants must register with the NRMP; registration begins in July 2020. Following your interview, please follow NRMP instructions and instructions provided by our fellowship program at the time of your interview to submit your rank order list to the Match program.
