How to Apply

The Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell Program, also known as the Smith Institute for Urology, matches three residents each year. Medical students may apply using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). There is no longer a need to apply separately into the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) to match into a general surgery preliminary year. Residents accepted into Urology are now Urology residents from day 1 of training.  

Required Materials /

  • ERAS Application

  • Curriculum Vitae

  • Medical School Transcript

  • USMLE and/or COMLEX Transcripts

  • Personal Statement

  • 3 Letters of Recommendation

  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation

Applications for residency beginning in 2021 may be submitted through ERAS starting September 1, 2020.

All residency programs will have access to residency applications beginning on October 21, 2020. Interview offers will be extended on November 6, 2020, and either accepted or rejected on November 9, 2020.

Interviews are required in order to gain admission to the program. Interviews this year will be virtual.
