Application process

Applications are accepted one to two years prior to the anticipated starting date. The Pediatric Radiology Application must be accompanied by three letters of recommendation from residency faculty.

International applicants

For international citizens, Children's Mercy primarily accepts applicants with J-1 Visa status.

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

Changing immigration status

Residents/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.

For this fellowship, travel will be reimbursed up to $300 per applicant for round trip coach airfare within the continental United States. If traveling by car and if the travel distance one-way to Children's Mercy is greater than 50 miles from your home address, round-trip gas mileage to your home address will be reimbursed at the current federal government mileage rate up to $300 per applicant. Mileage will be calculated based on the distance between your home address and Children's Mercy Hospital; this data will be derived from an internet mapping program.

A copy of the airline itinerary including ticket price or a completed expense report documenting mileage driven must be submitted to the program coordinator within 15 days from the date of travel to process your reimbursement. Transportation to and from the airport by taxi or shuttle are also reimbursed with a receipt.
