FAU Neurology Residency FAQ’s

Do you offer visiting student rotations or observership opportunities?
No, we do not.
What is your residency program application deadline?
The deadline for application is November 15th.
What is the cutoff point of year since graduation?
There is no cutoff. If you are not a recent graduate, documentation of recent clinical work and clinical letters of support are recommended.
Does the Neurology Residency offer pre-match?
Pre-match is not offered.
How many residency slots are available?
There are three categorical positions available in the FAU Neurology Residency Program.
How many candidates do you interview?
We interview approximately 40-60 adult candidates. Applicants on a wait list will be invited to interview if a slot opens.
How will I know if I have been selected for an interview?
All communication will be sent through ERAS Program Messages. Every application is individually reviewed, so it is unnecessary to contact the Neurology Residency Program for application updates.  Due to the high volume of application inquiries, voicemails and emails will not be returned.
Does Florida Atlantic University sponsor or accept any visas, H1 or J1?

FAU is not a VISA sponsor. J1 VISAs are sponsored by the ECFMG. An ECMFG certificate is required as a condition of hire. You must contact the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) for application materials and eligibility requirement. Please write to:

Are there minimum Step 1 and 2 or COMLEX 1 and 2 scores?
There is no minimum score; however, a low score & multiple attempts will make the application less competitive. A passing Step 2 or COMLEX 2 score is required to be ranked.
Is clinical experience within the United States required? If yes, how long?
This type of experience is preferable, but not mandatory.
