Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship Program

Fall 2020 Interviews

To assure the safety of our applicants, faculty, staff and patients, we are conducting all interviews for Fall 2020 virtually. Every effort will be made to make sure Children’s Mercy commitment to clinical excellence, dedicated teaching, innovative research, and a warm and supportive environment is visible to you. If you are unfamiliar with Kansas City, please take a few minutes to explore what we have to offer. We guarantee you will like what you see!

Prerequisites

Qualified applicants must complete an ACGME-accredited, three-year pediatric residency program prior to beginning the fellowship. Certification in general pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics is a requirement for continuation in the fellowship program.

International Applicants

Children's Mercy 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 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 residency program. In some cases, Children's Mercy will sponsor an H-1B Visa.

Changing Immigrant Status

Residents and fellows who wish to change their immigration classification while pursuing a graduate medical training program at Children's Mercy 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.
