UTMB Dermatology Invites 30 Medical Students from Outside Institutions to Interview for Dermatology Residency Positions

From over 400 dermatology residency applications received this year, the UTMB Department of Dermatology has selected 30 medical students to interview in late January 2014 for the 4 dermatology residency positions available through the upcoming 2014 NRMP match. Of the selected students, 29 will receive an MD degree by 2014, while one will receive a DO degree. Students from 17 different medical and osteopathic schools were invited to interview, including every school in Texas and Louisiana. Twenty five of these applicants were AOA members. Their Step 1 scores ranged from to 235 to 273 (mean 252, median 250, mode 250). One applicant will complete a pediatric residency in 2014. Additional applicants were placed on the waiting list, and will be notified if an opportunity for an interview becomes available.

In addition to these 30 invitations to interview, all 7 applying UTMB students and house staff were invited to interview with the department on December 6, 2013. Six visiting medical and osteopathic students who took a clinical rotation at UTMB during the 2013-2014 academic year were also interviewed for a dermatology residency position at the time of their summer or fall rotation in Galveston.
