  • Number of graduates last six years and subsequent career choice: pediatrics: six (academic: three; private: three); medicine: six (academic: one; private: five) 

Application Process 

All applicants apply through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). We participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). The match takes place in December, six months prior to the start of fellowship. Interviews are by invitation only. 

In regards to foreign graduates, Children's Mercy 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 non-immigrant Visa classification and have and maintain valid ECFMG certification throughout the length of their training program. Applicants must also have participated in a US ACGME accredited pediatrics or internal medicine/pediatrics residency program. In some cases, Children's Mercy 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.
