We seek applicants who are excited about pediatrics, work and play well with others, are intelligent and accomplished. Applicants who bring diverse experiences and backgrounds with a wide range of interests will thrive here. We are especially interested in those who will become leaders in one or more of the many areas of academic pediatrics: medical care, laboratory or clinical research, teaching, patient advocacy, public policy or global health.
Our interview days will be conducted virtually this year during the Coronavirus pandemic. We are working hard to develop new programming so that we can share our residency with you and get to know you! Please reach out to us with any questions, concerns, or ideas. We look forward to meeting you!
Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service, and we participate in the National Residency Match Program. The NRMP program code for the Categorical Pediatrics program is 1076320C0.

Interviews will be held virtually on Monday afternoons and Thursday and Friday mornings, November through January. We will limit the number of candidates per day to provide a more personal experience.

Physician-Scientist Interview Days
We offer interview opportunities more specifically geared toward physician-scientists. Applicants interested in careers that involve basic science or translational research will participate in a regular interview day, but will have the additional opportunity to meet with research faculty on their interview day to discuss mutual research interests and learn more about the research community on our campus.
Physician-scientist informational sessions with faculty and current physician-scientist residents in our program will occur in November and December:
We welcome and encourage all who are interested to apply to our program. We carefully review all complete applications for consideration of an interview offer. In the midst of a global pandemic, the selection committee will be understanding and flexible with the impact of the pandemic and delays and challenges with obtaining ECFMG certification and in-person clinical experiences.
We do not have specific criteria so emails inquiring about IMG status will not be answered due to workload involved.
