How to Apply

Child Neurology Match

We plan to match three categorical positions for the combined pediatrics and child neurology residency in the 2021-2022 Match. These categorical positions will be in addition to our reserved position, which is filled through 2023, and result in a total of four child neurology residents in each class.

All candidates applying to the categorical positions will be eligible to match to a five-year position in both the pediatrics and child neurology residencies at Children’s National Hospital. As of the 2020-2021 interview season, you only need to apply to the child neurology categorical track to be considered for the categorical position. Interviews will be available virtually based on the circumstances related to COVID-19.

Please submit your application to the following track for the 2021-2022 Match:

  • Categorical child neurology – NRMP code 1070185C0. Three positions, medical student. Apply if you are interested in the categorical child neurology track to receive interviews in both pediatrics and child neurology.

Candidates must also plan to take steps I and II of the USMLE before beginning their residency. International Medical Graduates must have completed USMLE steps I and II prior to applying and must demonstrate that they have had significant exposure to medicine in the United States.

Eligible candidates will be invited for interviews by the departments of Pediatrics and Neurology.
