Acknowledging the increasing cost of gas and travel and the
cumulative financial effect on those applying for residency and
fellowships, Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics is pleased
to offer travel reimbursement for applicants invited to interview
in our residency and fellowship programs.
Travel will be reimbursed up to $300 per applicant for round
trip coach airfare within the continental United States. If
traveling by car and if the travel distance one-way to Children's
Mercy is greater than 50 miles, round-trip gas mileage to your home
address will be reimbursed at the current federal government
mileage rate up to $300 per applicant. Mileage will be calculated
based on the distance between your home address and Children's
Mercy Hospital; this data will be derived from an internet mapping
A copy of the airline itinerary including ticket price (only the
cost of the airline ticket will be reimbursed, not the airport
transportation, mileage from the airport, etc.) or a completed
expense report documenting mileage driven must be submitted to the
fellowship program coordinator within 15 days from the date of
travel to process your reimbursement.
Children's Mercy Hospital also provides one-night hotel
accommodation at a local hotel surrounding your interview day.
Please contact the program coordinator of the fellowship you are
considering if you have further questions. We look forward to
meeting you during your interview day at Children's Mercy
