Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship

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!

Fellows are required to have completed an ACGME-accredited pediatric or combined pediatric-internal medicine residency program.

The application consists of curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation (one from the Program Director, two additional Letters of Recommendation from faculty members), and a one-page personal statement detailing reasons for wanting to pursue academic training in Pediatric Hospital Medicine. Our program uses the PHM Fellowship Common Application. Interview invitations will be extended starting on August 12th. Interviews will occur in October and November.

The Children's Mercy Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship Program participates in the National Residency Matching Program.  The Match opens in August.

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. 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.
