Our General Academic Pediatric Fellowship will be participating in the Pediatric Fall Specialties National Residency Match Program (NRMP). Applicants must be successful graduates of an ACGME-approved pediatric residency program and must be a permanent resident or citizen of the United States.
The application consists of the Academic Pediatrics Association Common Fellowship Application Form, an updated CV and a one-page personal statement that explains why you want to do a fellowship in General Academic Pediatrics as well as a description of your scholarly/research interests, your career goals/future plans and how the fellowship may assist you in achieving them. We also require three letters of recommendation accompanied by a confidential reference report. All fellowship applicants interested in applying for the Children’s National General Academic Pediatrics Fellowship must register for the Pediatric Fall Specialties NRMP Match.
The General Academic Pediatrics Fellowship at Children’s Nation values inclusion and diversity and strives to have the fellows in our program reflect the diversity of the local community. We believe that pediatric providers with varied background and interests serve to strengthen our program and our ability to positively impact the health of the community that we serve. We strongly encourage those from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented to medicine to apply to our program.
Applications will be reviewed upon receipt and interviews will be offered on a rolling basis.
