Second Friday of December: OEM Offer Day
Occupational & Environmental Medicine does not participate in the Match. Program directors nationally agree to extend offers on the same day in December.
The University of Washington OEM program accepts applications exclusively through ERAS. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis between September 15-October 31 for positions beginning July 1st the following year.
We request applicants submit four (4) letters of recommendation, including one from the most recent program director. No additional information is requested other than what is submitted through ERAS.
OEM core faculty screen applications. Candidates whose qualifications appear to be a good match for our program will receive an email invitation to arrange a visit to Seattle for a day of interviews with Dr. Debbie Cherry, Program Director, and other faculty within the OEM program.
Applicants who will pursue an MPH degree do NOT need to apply separately to the School of Public Health (SPH) during the residency application period. If a position offer is accepted, the program will facilitate an expedited SPH application process.
The University of Washington is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. We are strongly committed to increasing the number of underrepresented minorities entering careers in academic medicine. To this end, we strongly encourage applications of minority candidates to our program.
