How to Apply

Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship

Fellow applicants must be completing or completed a residency at an accredited Pediatric Residency Program in the United States and not have more than a two-year gap from time of completion to application. In exceptional instances, please contact the Program Director.  All candidates must have passed Step 3.

The Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program is under the institutional sponsorship of the Children’s Mercy.  We support the pursuit of advanced degrees, such as MPH; MS in Bioinformatics; Master's in Education; or MBA during fellowship training.

Prospective candidates for the Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program should apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  The program also participates in the National Resident Matching Program(NRMP). Application requirements are available through the ERAS system. We accept one fellow each year.

International applicants

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 non-immigrant Visa classification and have and maintain valid ECFMG certification throughout the length of their training Program. In some cases, Children's Mercy will sponsor H-1B Visa candidate.  Fellows who wish to change their immigration classification while pursuing fellowship Program training 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.

Thank you for your interest in the Children's Mercy Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program.
