Program Applicants and Students

How to apply

All application materials must be forwarded to Virginia Mason through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Once this process has been completed, your application will be reviewed. See applications page for details.

The Urology Residency Program at Virginia Mason participates in the American Urological Association Residency Match.


Applicants who are selected to interview with Virginia Mason will receive an invitation via ERAS, as applications are reviewed. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Society of Academic Urology (SAU) has provided guidance to all urology residency programs, which Virginia Mason will follow. Invitations to interview will go out on Nov. 6, 2020, and applicants will be asked to respond to all programs on Nov. 9, 2020. 

Interviews will be performed virtually on 6 half-day sessions on 3 separate days, which are to be determined. The format will include a program overview followed by a Zoom panel interview. The candidates will also have the opportunity to “meet” the residents.

Visiting Medical Students (Sub-internships)

Due to the COVID-19 situation, there will be no in-person sub-internships offered this year. There will be several interactive virtual sessions with the residents and attendings to provide information about our program and to allow candidates to have direct communication with our team. The first session will occur June 22, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. PST, and others will be announced on this website and via social media.

Applicants who are interested will have the opportunity to give a 10-minute virtual talk to the Virginia Mason Urology team on a topic of their choice. Interested candidates can contact Joy Mala at or (206) 583-6430 to sign up. Slots, which will be offered on Tuesday mornings from 6:45-7 a.m. PST, are limited and will be assigned on a first come first served basis. 

We hope to return to traditional sub-internships in the next academic cycle.
