Application process

Residents play an integral role in the care that is provided to our patients. To ensure our patients are receiving the best quality of care, we have basic requirements for entry to the program. In general, we take into account all aspects of an application to determine how an applicant may add to the experiences of the program, instead of focusing on single factors.

Applicants interested in the vascular surgery training program at Lenox Hill Hospital should apply through the electronic residency application service (ERAS).

Essential application information includes:

  • Common application form
  • Curriculum vitae
  • USMLE or COMLEX transcript
  • Medical school transcript
  • A personal statement
  • Dean’s letter
  • Three (3) letters of recommendation, no older than six (6) months
  • ECFMG Status Report, if applicable 

Interviewing information

The application and interview process generally takes approximately five months. Applications are reviewed by the department's Residency Selection Committee and selected applicants are contacted by email to interview with the faculty and current residents.

Once you are invited for an interview, we would like to make your time at Lenox Hill Hospital as productive as possible. The following is a guide to how the interview day may proceed.

  • Breakfast and applicant orientation
  • Interviews with five to seven faculty members
  • Campus tour
  • Lunch with residents
  • Tour of student housing

The vascular surgery integrated residency program at Lenox Hill Hospital participates in the National Resident Match Program. Due to the volume of applications we receive and the time constraints of individual interviews, we may not consider applications received after the annual ERAS application deadline.

Interview lodging

The program does not pay for your lodging. However, there are a variety of hotels in the area surrounding the hospital. For a listing of nearby hotels, please visit our visitor information page.
