PROCESS & COMMUNICATION

Creighton University’s OBGYN Residency Program participates in ERAS—the Electronic Residency Application Service—from the Association of American Medical Colleges. Please check the ERAS home page for further details. We only accept applications through ERAS.

The program director and the application review committee review all applications that meet the criteria and determine which applicants to invite for an interview. Our interviews take place in December and January on predetermined interview dates by invitation only.

We participate in the NRMP (National Residency Match Program).

POST-INTERVIEW COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL

We encourage all applicants to investigate each program thoroughly as their rank lists are created. Please feel free to contact our Residency Coordinator, rebeccalair [at] creighton [dot] edu (Rebecca Lair) through email about any objective information regarding the Creighton program you might need after your virtual interview. To maximize compliance with the spirit of the NRMP guidelines regarding communication between applicants and programs, please do not send “thank-you” notes. They are unnecessary and irrelevant in our selection process.
