We accept applications via ERAS and will participate in the NRMP. Register with the NRMP and apply to us through ERAS. The handout, Otolaryngology Residency Application Guide (PDF), prepared for our own students applying to otolaryngology, may be helpful as well. Our program takes three residents per year.
We will consider applications as they arrive so we encourage you to send them in as early as you are able. We send interview invitations out during the period in October and November, as recommended by the Otolaryngology Program Directors Organization and the Association of Academic Departments of Otolaryngology.
We are happy to talk to you by phone as needed, but the preferred method for routine communication will be by email. Therefore, keep us updated regarding your email address.
Residency programs at the University of Mississippi Medical Center require state licensure. Applicants for licensure in Mississippi must submit passing USMLE scores for Step 1 and Step 2 (both the CKA and CSA parts) to the licensure board. In order to be employed as a resident at UMMC, an applicant without United States citizenship must have a permanent or a J-1 visa.
