Graduates of residencies in either pediatrics or emergency medicine are considered for entry. Applications will be accepted only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

When submitting an application in ERAS, you must apply to the general PEM fellowship program, either the Academic Track or Clinical Track.  The Academic Track is available to both pediatrics and emergency medicine residency trained applicants.  The Clinical Track is available only to emergency medicine residency trained applicants who have outside funding.

The PEM-Global Health Track is currently available to pediatrics and residency trained applicants. If you are interested in the PEM-GH Track, then select the PEM-GH track in ERAS. The PEM-CAP fellowship is open to pediatrics residency trained applicants. If you are interested in the PEM-CAP fellowship, then select PEM-CAP in ERAS.

Applications may be submitted from early July until the end of August. Current residents may apply during their final year of residency training.

Our interview season begins in September and lasts until the first week of November.
