Application FAQs

How do I submit an application?
We participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and applications are only accepted through the Electronic Residency Matching Service (ERAS).

Is there an application submission deadline?
We do not have a set submission deadline. We review applications continuously throughout the interview season. The majority of invitations to interview are sent out in July, and our interview season runs from August–October.

Do you require a United States Internal Medicine Residency?
Successful completion of a United States ACGME-approved Internal Medicine residency, or its equivalent, is required prior to beginning the ID fellowship. Exceptional candidates without such qualification could be considered for matching if our GME office approves.

Which visas do you sponsor?
As a policy of The University of Texas Medical School at Houston and The University of Texas System Medical Foundation, we can only sponsor J-1 visas. We specifically cannot sponsor H1 visas.
