The Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics' Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Fellowship Program includes the following requirements:
- Completion of an ACGME-accredited residency program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation or
- Completion of an ACGME-accredited combined residency program in PMR/Pediatrics or
- Completion of separate ACGME-accredited residencies in Pediatrics and PMR, and
- American Board of PMR certification or eligibility
Our program participates in ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). The deadline for applications is November 1, 2014. Three letters of recommendation are required and all candidates must have passed Step 3.
The program participates in the National Residency Matching Program.
Interviews provide the opportunity for candidates not only to meet our staff, but tour our excellent facilities and interact with current fellows. Interviews are generally held from September to November. Children's Mercy will arrange and pay for accommodations for one night at a local hotel. The evening before your interview, we also invite you to join a group of our faculty members for dinner in one of Kansas City's numerous entertainment districts. Children's Mercy also reimburses up to $300 in travel expenses for those candidates who travel from outside the Kansas City Metro area to interview.
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.
