Pediatric Rheumatology Fellowship - Apply

We accept applications for the Pediatric Rheumatology Fellowship Program at Penn State Children’s Hospital through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

Application requirements

We require a minimum of three letters of recommendation from faculty, including your current program director. All applicants must have completed a pediatric, or internal medicine/ pediatrics, residency at an ACGME-accredited residency program.

Application process

We accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), and we participate in the match through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). You must register with both NRMP and ERAS to participate in the services of each organization.

Your application will be reviewed once your ERAS application is complete. We invite qualified applicants for an interview. We’ll pay for one night of your lodging the day before your interview. These arrangements will be made by the coordinator.

All applications are considered without regard to race, religion, gender, or national origin.

International students

International medical graduates must hold a currently valid certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) to be considered for the match. All applicants must have completed an ACGME accredited pediatric or internal medicine/pediatrics residency. We accept J1 visas.
