We will be accepting applications for 2014 though the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) starting in July 2013.


Candidates must have satisfactorily completed an ACGME-accredited residency in general pediatrics prior to the start of their fellowship and have completed national certifying examinations sufficient for NY state licensure.

  • Personal statement telling us about yourself, your interest in developmental-behavioral pediatrics, long-term plans, and specific fellowship training goals

In addition, please complete a LEND application and submit it via email to Phyllis Ives. Download the LEND application in PDF format.

Selection criteria will include an excellent performance record. Preference is given to applicants who have career goals consistent with those of the program.

Candidates are required, with rare exception, to visit Rochester for personal interviews with members of the faculty and to meet our current fellows.

We encourage new fellows to arrive two weeks prior to their start date of July 1st in order to finalize new hire paperwork, secure housing, etc.
