How to Apply

Application Process:

We invite you to learn more about our program, meet our faculty, fellows, and staff and explore our hospital using the links below, but nothing replaces an actual visit. We participate in the National Residency Matching Program as part of the Pediatric Subspecialties Fall Match.  All applications must be submitted through ERAS.

Applicants must possess a MD or DO degree and be eligible to obtain licensure to practice medicine in the state of Illinois.  The candidate must be a Resident in Pediatrics at the PL-2 level or higher at an ACGME accredited program or have completed this training. Upon completion of a Pediatric Residency Program, the candidate must be eligible to take board examinations in Pediatrics offered by the American Board of Pediatrics. The University of Chicago is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer.  We encourage applications from under-represented minorities.  Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis as of the program start date.  If sponsorship is needed, J-1 visas are preferred.

Applications must include:

  • ERAS application form
  • CV
  • Personal statement
  • Passport-size photo
  • Transcript
  • USMLE or COMLEX scores
  • Three letters of recommendation from medical faculty that are familiar with the candidate’s work in pediatrics and/or research. One letter must be from the Pediatric Residency Program Director.
