Admission Requirements

Thank you for your interest in Detroit Medical Center/Wayne State University's Anesthesiology Residency Program. We accept residency applications via the ERAS system only. Usually, we review applications from all interested parties with USMLE scores 240 or above on Steps I and II (on the 1st attempt). We also look strongly at research interests, clinical experience, and ties to the Detroit/Michigan area.    

We are a categorical FOUR year program, with the first year in Internal Medicine here at the Detroit Medical Center, so there is no need to apply for a transitional year separately.  

We do accept foreign medical graduates. The Detroit Medical Center will sponsor J-1 visas only. We do not sponsor H-1B visas.

We do not require any minimum experience; however, if you have been out of medical school for a few years, we would then like to see some form of anesthesia experience.  

If you feel that you meet these qualifications, we would be happy to review your application. Again, thank you for your interest in the DMC/Wayne State University Anesthesiology Residency Program.
