Applicants

Our program welcomes allopathic and osteopathic medical students to apply who are seeking a non-competing residency program in a medical hub that provides exposure to multiple specialties including obstetric and pediatric inpatient services for the community.

Our dually-accredited (ACGME and AOA) program obtained ACGME Osteopathic Recognition Status in 2015. Beginning with the 2017 Match, Floyd will only be accepting osteopathic applicants through the NRMP match. Osteopathic applicants interviewing at our program can request they be considered for one of the three Osteopathic Focus Track positions and will be provided with a broad osteopathic curriculum that will include OPP/OMT didactics, OMT continuity clinics and OMT hospital consult service.

We accept applications for our training program only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) until December 31.
