Program Policies

The Colorado Health Foundation Transitional Year Program
Policy for Resident Eligibility

Applicants to this program will only be eligible if they apply through the NRMP match process and are from an LCME-accredited United States allopathic medical school.

To be considered for an interview, applicants should have evidence of outstanding academic achievement during medical school. Preference will be given to those applicants who have demonstrated this in such areas as:

  • Outstanding Board scores
  • Election to AOA (in schools where there is an AOA chapter)
  • A preponderance of Honors grades (or the equivalent)

In view of the limited number of interviews necessary to fill this program with outstanding candidates, the Program Director may, at his/her discretion, utilize available filters within the ERAS™ program to limit the applicant pool in accordance with the policy guidelines listed above.
