Our three-year fellowship seeks physicians who will have completed two to three years of training in an ACGME approved pediatric residency program or who are ECFMG certified and have completed all three steps of the USMLE.
Our fellowship program participates in the ERAS universal application process and the National Residency Matching Program. Please visit the ERAS Web site at www.aamc.org/services/eras/ for an application, information about our program, and important deadlines. The NRMP Web site is at www.nrmp.org/fellow/index.html.
The following information should be uploaded into the ERAS program:
The ERAS deadline for completed applications is May 31, 2013 (for positions starting 1 July 2014). Applicants are advised to apply early and complete their applications early due to limited availability of interviews.
The minimum application materials needed to be considered for an interview include:
Applicants are advised to access their file frequently to ensure timely submission of all components of their application. Additional application materials will be requested upon extending an invitation for interview. A personal interview is required for applicants who will be ranked for matching, and the Division of Neonatology can offer up a one night stay at a nearby hotel and up to $250 of the cost of the flight.
We are accredited by the Accredited Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), which requires all International Medical Graduate applicants to be ECFMG certified and have completed the first two steps (J-1 visa) or all three steps (H1-B visa) of the USMLE before they apply.
The visa policy for the University of Washington School of Medicine requires foreign nationals to obtain a J-1 visa sponsored by the ECFMG. The University of Washington Medical Center does not generally provide H1-B sponsorship unless otherwise ineligible for a J-1 visa. H1-B visas are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are subject to approval by the University of Washington GME Office and the University of Washington Office of the Provost. Below is the link to the UW SOM visa policy.
Applicants are advised to apply early, though applications received after March 1, 2013 may still be considered.
