Application Information

The Division of Pediatric Rheumatology 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.


Candidates must have satisfactorily completed an ACGME accredited residency in general pediatrics or internal medicine/pediatrics prior to entering fellowship. Applicants pursuing other training pathways approved by the American Board of Pediatrics are also welcomed to apply.

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