Graduate physicians may apply directly. The following items must accompany the Pediatric Pathology Application and should be submitted if you are interested in applying for a fellowship position with Children's Mercy's Pediatric Pathology Program:
- Letter of interest
- Curriculum vitae
- Three letters of recommendation
- Standard ECFMG certificate for all international medical graduates
- Eligibility for ECFMG J-1 visa sponsorship if candidate does not have permanent status in the United States
For international citizens, CMH primarily accepts applicants with J-1 Visa status. To be eligible for appointment, all international citizens must be sponsored by the ECFMG for the J-1 nonimmigrant Visa classification and have and maintain valid ECFMG certification throughout the length of their training Program. In some cases, CMH will sponsor an H-1B Visa. Residents/Fellows who wish to change their immigration classification while pursuing a graduate medical training Program at CMH must seek prior written approval from the GME Department. Failure to seek such approval will subject the trainee to immediate termination from his/her training Program. All candidates must have passed Step 3.
Invitations for interviews are extended to selected candidates. Candidates are chosen on the basis of their medical training, general achievements and personal qualities. During the interview, you will meet the department chair, director, members of the fellowship selection committee, other faculty and current fellows in order to learn about the personal qualities that are required of a successful fellow. We will give you a tour of our facilities and offer you plenty of opportunities to have your questions answered.
