Thank you for your interest in our residency program at Albany Medical Center. In considering candidates for residency, we review each and every application that we receive. There is no single factor that we use to decide who will be invited for interviews. We are primarily looking for evidence that candidates have the ability and motivation to develop into skilled, caring and competent physicians.
