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. Applications may be submitted from July 1 - September 15. Interviews will run from September to mid-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.
