Applying to Our Residency
We support and use the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) to transmit residency applications, letters of recommendation, MSPEs, transcripts and other supporting credentials. Use this system at your medical school to quickly and easily apply to our program.
We also participate in both the NRMP and the AOA Intern/Resident Registration Program.
If you are unable to use ERAS, please contact:

Be sure to download the Choosing A Residency packet, a guide to asking the right questions as you visit and interview family medicine residencies.
Minimum Application Requirements
The minimum requirements to be considered for our residency program are listed below for your convenience.
We require that all PGY-1 applicants apply through ERAS. As part of your ERAS application, you need to submit a copy of your USMLE or COMLEX transcript. You need to have passed Part I of the USMLE or COMLEX exam in order to apply and Part II prior to match. A maximum of one (1) fail on any part of the USMLE (Pt I, Pt II CK & CS) or COMLEX (Pt I, Pt II CE & PE) examinations will be allowed and scores passing and above will be considered.
All applicants not currently in a formal ACGME or AOA accredited program need to have graduated from medical school within the last two years. International students/graduates need to participate in a minimum three-month formal rotation in the U.S. sponsored by a medical school, hospital, or residency program in order to be considered for an interview. The formal rotation must include documented hands-on patient care including presenting patients, assessing histories and performing physical examinations, as well as other tasks assigned under the supervision of a U.S. licensed attending physician. Please note that at the present time we do not sponsor visas.
PGY-2 or PGY-3 Transfers
In the case of open PGY-2 or PGY-3 positions, consideration will be given to physicians with post-graduate training in an approved U.S. residency program who meet sufficient advanced placement requirements.
Toledo Hospital Family Medicine Residency is an equal employment opportunity program.
Tobacco-free Hiring Practice
To foster a healthier workforce, as well as to demonstrate to our patients and the community our strong commitment to health and wellness, as of Jan. 1, 2011, ProMedica will hire only tobacco-free employees. Our application asks about the use of tobacco and nicotine replacement, and candidates will be screened for nicotine before they are hired.
Applicants who declare use or screen positive for nicotine may reapply for a position after they have been tobacco/nicotine-free for 90 days.
