All Pediatric-Genetics applications should be directed through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) which transmits residency applications, letters of recommendation, Dean's Letters, transcripts, and other supporting credentials to residency programs using the internet. Physicians or students interested in the Pediatric-Genetics Residency Program at the University of Utah may access ERAS through the dean's office of their medical school. International Medical Graduates should apply through the ECFMG office.

Except for unusual circumstances, all University of Utah PL-1 positions are filled through the NRMP (National Resident Matching Program).

The Pediatric-Genetics program has its own separate NRMP match number. Please visit the NRMP website for more information.
