UTSW February 2022 Residency

Posted

Hello All! This is a forum for those applying to the UTSW Residency Program this upcoming February 2022. I applied to UTSW residency and a couple of other hospitals. Good luck to everyone!

🙋‍♀️ I'm here too, I also applied the MC, the other post you started. Probably gonna try Texas Health too, but I'm probably laying most of my eggs at UT and MC.

Same here! UTSW would be awesome. Medical City and THR are also in my top three. 

Does anyone know how many positions they have for each cohort? I'm from out of state and wonder if that puts me at a huge disadvantage.

I'm not sure how many positions. I know UTSW is pretty competitive in Dallas. I hear that they have the best benefits compared to the other nearby hospitals.

Thanks for answering! I also won't take the NCLEX til the end of the month. Is having an RN license necessary to be interviewed at UTSW and Baylor? Or is it only necessary upon the start date? Some of them are confusing and state requires RN license but then the employer questions ask if you have an RN license or will attain one upon the start date..

I'm pretty sure it's by the start date.

Every hospital is different but most hospitals require you to have your NCLEX by a certain point. Usually 6 weeks after the residency has begun. Some students wait until after they graduate to apply for jobs. By that point they usually will have already tested for their NCLEX. I hope this helps! 

Hey guys! I just applied for the UTSW Winter cohort! good luck everyone and please let us know if you hear from them :) 

medical city recruiter emailed me On the 3rd (pre-screen) and UTSW emailed me yesterday
