How To Apply
The Shenandoah Valley Family Practice Residency Program accepts applications
September through December via ERAS only for Allopathic (MD) or Osteopathic
(DO) residency. We do not prescreen applications.
We accept applications from MD and DO applicants. We will participate only
in the NRMP Match (some call it “the MD match”), as almost
all DO applicants apply in that Match now. Very few DO applicants applied
in the DO match (AOA match) in recent years. AOA and ACGME are merging
into one Single Accreditation System. We remain accredited by both and
by the ACGME for Osteopathic Recognition.
