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.
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.
