Pediatric Nephrology 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!

The The Children's Mercy Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship Program is sponsored by the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine and accepts one fellow each year. We participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and Pediatric Nephrology Match Program and also accept direct applications for those applying outside the match cycle. Three letters of recommendation from medical school faculty are required. Further requirements are below:

  • Application through ERAS

  • ECFMG certificate

  • Minimum two-digit score of 85 on parts I and II of USMLE

  • Clinical experience in the United States is preferable.

  • For international citizens, 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 nonimmigrant Visa classification and have and maintain valid ECFMG certification throughout the length of their training 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 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.
