Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship

How To Apply

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.

To be eligible for the Fellowship Program, the candidate must have an MD/DO degree and the qualifications to obtain a license 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. For candidates that lack these specific qualifications, such as those applying from outside of the United States, applications may be considered on an individual basis. 

Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis as of the program start date.  If sponsorship is required, J-1 visas are preferred.
