Frequently Asked Questions

1. How will the University of Michigan Neurology Program be conducting interviews this year?

The University of Michigan has made an institutional decision that all interviews will be virtual for the 2021-2022 recruitment season.

2. When are interviews?

This year, our interviews will go from late October through late December or early January. Scheduled interview days are often on Wednesdays, but with all interviews being virtual this year, we may offer some individual interviews on other days.

3. Does the University of Michigan neurology program come with matched internships in Ann Arbor?

We are recruiting 9 candidates this year, and all 9 come with a matched internship at the University of Michigan.

4. What types of visas do you sponsor?

The University of Michigan Graduate Medical Education office will only accept a J1 visa. The visa is obtained by the applicant through the ECFMG during credentialing.

5. Do you require clinical training in the United States?

If you are an international applicant, you are likely to receive strong consideration for our program only if you have received clinical training in the U.S., if your application shows other evidence that you have knowledge of medicine as practiced in Western countries, or if you have published significant scientific work. ECFMG certification is required.

6. What matching program and application service do you accept?

Our Neurology program participates in the NRMP Main Residency Match and in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applicants must register with both NRMP and ERAS to participate in the services of each.

7. Do you have observerships?

We are currently not offering any visiting rotations for students or applicants. When it is deemed safe to do so, we will allow U.S. medical students to apply to do rotations with us during their 4th year of medical school, but we do not plan to offer observerships to applicants who have already graduated from medical school.  

8. Do you offer an advanced program if I want to do my internship elsewhere?

No. Our neurology curriculum starts during the PGY-1 year, during which time residents participate in two months of clinical rotations with us and a a specialized one-month Boot Camp rotation.

9. Is there a cut-off date for MD or DO degree?

No, there is not a cut-off date for the MD or DO degree.

10. Is there a final date after which applications will not be considered?

There is no final date, but we begin reviewing applications the day that they are available in ERAS. Our interview slots fill up quickly, so it is a good idea to apply early.
