What makes Saint Peters unique? 


Application Procedure 

Our Internal Medicine Residency Program has 17 residents in each post graduate year and one fourth-year chief. Each position is categorical. We do not offer preliminary positions.    

All applicants must apply though the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). The deadline for applications for entry in June 2022 is November 30, 2021.   

“For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program will be participating in the supplemental ERAS application offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants will be required to complete the MyERAS application, and participation in the supplemental ERAS application is optional.”
