Pediatrics / Adolescent Medicine Fellowship / Application Information
 

Application Information

The Division of Adolescent Medicine welcomes applicants for our fellowship program. We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and utilize the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) to manage applications. ERAS opens in July for fellowship starting in July of the following year.
 
Applicants from pediatrics are expected to complete a three year fellowship. Applicants from internal medicine, family medicine, or internal medicine/pediatrics may choose a two or three year fellowship.

Virtual Interviews - We recognize this is an important time in your professional training – when you will continue to grow personally and professionally, expand your skills and develop plans for your future career.  Your safety is a top priority. We are committed to helping you navigate your application process during these unprecedented times.  For these reasons, we’ll follow the recommendation from the Coalition of Physician Accountability (membership includes ACGME, ACCME, AACOM, ABMS, AOA, AMA etc.) to hold only virtual interviews this season for positions starting in the 2021 – 2022 academic year.  Our faculty and administrative teams are available and will ensure that information is relayed to you in a manner that allows you to make an informed and thoughtful decision.   We welcome your application through ERAS and look forward to meeting you virtually!

Prerequisite

Candidates must have satisfactorily completed an ACGME accredited residency in general pediatrics, internal medicine, family medicine, or internal medicine/pediatrics by the start of their fellowship.

For eligibility information, please read our GME Applicant Eligibility Policy.
