How to Apply

WE ARE ALL IN! NRMP Match and Virtual Interviews  

What a year to be starting our first fellowship class! While the circumstances are challenging and unprecedented, the need for this program is even more evident. We are excited to provide a training experience shaped by themes of justice, equity and cultural and structural humility for our fellows - and by your interest in joining us. We are all in on the match and will be participating in the process this fall. Many CAP fellowship programs are offering spots outside of the match this year; however, we value the opportunity to share what has been built here at MSM with as many folks as possible. While interviews will be virtual, we are hard at work in making sure the experience leaves you with a strong sense of what we're all about. 
Warm Regards,
