We consider pediatrics and med/peds residents for entry into our fellowship. We also encourage pediatric sub-specialist (including current fellows) interested in becoming dual-boarded in pediatric critical care to apply. Our fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The University of Utah seeks to provide equal access to its programs, services, and activities for people with disabilities. Please provide us reasonable prior notice to arrange accommodations.

Please submit your pediatric critical care fellowship application directly to ERAS.

Write or call the Sharon Marron, the fellowship coordinator, if you need any assistance or further information on applying.

Current stipends and benefits are available from the GME office at the University of Utah.

How to Apply for a Fellowship

Complete the ERAS Application. A full application includes:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Medical school transcript
  • USMLE transcript
  • Medical school dean's letter (MSPE)
  • Summary letter from program director
  • Minimum of two letters of recommendation
    • We find letters from close mentors, independent of specialty, to be the most valuable when considering applications.
  • Personal statement

After reviewing your completed application materials, we will contact you regarding an interview. Our program participates in the NRMP's Pediatric Critical Care match.

Interviews typically include dinner with current fellows, lunch with our nursing colleagues and one-on-one interviews with multiple faculty members. We introduce applicants to potential mentors and fellows with common interests. We hope applicants return home with an understanding of our program’s resources and culture. In turn, during the interview, we focus on learning more about you--what can’t be gleaned from a paper application.    

(Given the current COVID-19 situation we are not holding in-person interviews.)

Applicants selected for interview will receive round trip airfare and hotel accommodations. 

Rank order lists for both programs and applicants are due in November. We try to complete all interviews by October 31.

*The University of Utah Affiliated Hospitals require all international medical graduates to have ECFMG certification in order to enter a residency program. If you are a non-US citizen, you must also have a J-1 Visa.

Due to COVID-19 and recommendations from the Association of Pediatric Program Directors, all Fall 2020 interviews will be conducted virtually. Format for interviews is currently being determined. We will notify all applicants invited for an interview of the format well before your scheduled day.   We are committed to an equitable interview process that allows you to learn about our program.
