How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in applying to the University of Illinois College of Medicine Rockford Family Medicine Residency Program.


Preferred but not required:

  • US clinical experience other than research for international graduates
  • Medical school graduation within two years of start date


  • Maximum of one failure on the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1
  • No failures on Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) or Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK)

These criteria are simply the requirements needed for your application to be reviewed; they do not guarantee an interview. Interviews will be granted upon further review of the application and all of its contents.

All applications to the program must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The deadline is December 2; however, early submission is encouraged.

We will contact you if we wish to schedule an interview. Interviews will take place from late October through January. We also sponsor J1 and H1-B visas.
