GME Family Medicine Application Information

Mercy Family Medicine Residency program only accepts applications for residency positions through ERAS. Applications are accepted through December 15 of each calendar year. A minimum of three letters of references, a Dean’s letter, medical school transcript and a report of all USMLE and/or COMLEX attempts is required for a complete application.

Mercy Family Medicine desires a diverse physician workforce. In addition to diversity, part of our mission is to grow Missouri’s physician workforce.  As such, candidates who would be ineligible for a permanent Missouri physician license are unlikely to be considered for interview or ranking.
