Applicants interested in applying for the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship at Children's Mercy must be in their final year of residency training or have completed training in either pediatrics, internal medicine/pediatrics or emergency medicine.
The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship program participates in the NRMP and accepts applications through ERAS. Applications are accepted annually from June through October. Interviews are by invitation and are scheduled from late August through October. Candidates are chosen for interview on the basis of their medical training, general achievements and personal qualities.
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 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.
