To apply to our Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship, you must submit your application online via ERAS––the Electronic Residency Application Service of the Association of American Medical Colleges. Fellowship positions are offered through the fall specialty matching service of the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).
Your application should include three letters of recommendation, a personal statement, indicating your career goals and interests, and your USMLE transcript. We understand that given the COVID-19 epidemic you may not have had the opportunity to rotate through infectious diseases or to work with an infectious disease mentor. Therefore, we will accept letters of recommendation from any faculty in your current residency program. A letter from your program director is highly desirable. If you have had relevant experiences in infectious diseases during medical school, one letter related to those activities is also acceptable and encouraged, although it is not required. Applications are accepted starting a year before the fellowship start date in July. Interviews are held from September through November, and positions are offered in December. In the interest of safety and equity, all interviews during the 2020. Application season will be held virtually. J-1 and H-1 visa holders are eligible to apply. Preference is given to applicants with prior residency training at an ACGME accredited program, however we will consider applicants who have completed residency training outside the United States at a non-ACGME accredited program on a case-by-case basis.
