Application Process

Requirements

The Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program requires a degree of Doctor of Medicine or Osteopathy and successful completion of three years of general pediatric training in an ACGME accredited program.

Process

Applicants need to apply through the Association of American Medical College’s Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) website. Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) is a service that transmits the MyERAS application and supporting documentation from applicants and their Designated Dean’s Office to program directors. ERAS consists of MyERAS, Dean’s Office Workstation (DWS), Program Director’s Workstation (PDWS), and ERAS PostOffice.

MyERAS website opens to fellowship applicants in early July for applicants to register and begin working on their applications. The ERAS post office opens in mid August for programs to begin downloading applications. Applicants are required to complete their application packet in ERAS prior to receiving an offer for an interview. This consists of:

A completed application form with personal statement
Medical school transcripts
USMLE (or COMLEX) transcript
Three letters of reference

Fellowship positions are selected through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). All applicants also need to register with NRMP to enter the match. Details regarding registration for the match and important deadlines can be found on the NRMP website.
