How to Apply

Pediatric Sports Medicine Fellowship

2019 Interview Information


Thank you for your interest in the Children's Mercy Pediatric Sports Medicine Fellowship Program. The 2019 Interview dates will be Friday, November 15 and Friday, November 22.

Prospective candidates should apply through the Electronic Residency Application Services (ERAS). Specific application requirements and materials are available through the ERAS system. We also participate in the NRMP match.

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. 

Changing immigration status

Residents and 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.
