How to Apply

Child Neurology Match

We plan to match three categorical positions for the combined pediatrics and child neurology residency in the 2022-2023 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. You should only apply to the child neurology categorical track to be considered for the categorical position and the pediatrics interviews will automatically be scheduled once you are scheduled with neurology. Interviews will be available virtually, and based on current APPD guidelines in-person second looks and tours will not be available to reduce the financial pressure to travel and avoid creating disparities amongst candidates based on their ability to visit.

Please submit your application to the following track for the 2022-2023 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.

You will receive more information about our interviews if invited.
