Apply to Residency Program

Please complete an application through the AAMC Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The application requires a personal statement, medical school transcript, USMLE scores for Step 1 and 2 exams, three letters of reference, and the Dean's letter. It is preferred to have Step 2 completed, with scores available for review, by February 1. Residency positions are selected through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). 

Our program features 29 total residents divided over the 4 years of training.  We offer either 7 or 8 categorical positions each year. Our categorical residency positions include one year of Internal Medicine at NYP/Weill Cornell, followed by three years of neurology, though some neurology and psychiatry rotation time is built into the PGY1 year. A separate application to the NRMP for the internal medicine PGY1 year is not required for our program.

One Research Track position (PGY 1-4 categorical) is also offered every four years. Our most recent Research Track position as a 4-year categorical position began in July 2021. 

Unexpected program vacancies are listed through the AAMC "Find a Resident" Website. If you have any questions, please review the Frequently Asked Questions section. Also, please feel free to contact us directly.

For foreign applicants, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital ONLY sponsors J-1 visas through ECFMG. NYPH does not sponsor H-1B visas.

For international medical school graduates, ECFMG certification is required.

Pediatric Neurology Residency

Weill Cornell Medicine offers a Pediatric Neurology Residency. Residents follow the first-year adult neurology program, but in subsequent years receive instruction specific to their area of specialization. This includes attendance at a weekly pediatric neuroradiology conference, Grand Rounds, the pediatric epilepsy clinic, the muscular dystrophy clinic, and the general pediatric neurology clinic. 

Residents make daily ward rounds when on service and may see patients with the division chief or other members of the Weill Cornell faculty practice. Six months of the two-year training are elective, and may be spent developing skills in special areas of clinical or basic neuroscience with the approval of the Director. 

This program requires two years of pediatric training prior to acceptance.
