How to Apply

The Pediatric Surgery Fellowship Program at the University of Utah participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service ERAS®. This allows you to complete one application and apply to all participating fellowships you are interested in. The deadline for completed applications to our program is Monday, December 16, 2019.

We recognize that the interview process is costly to the resident applicants both in terms of time and money. We therefore emphasize the importance of pre-interview screening. We will review all applications shortly after the deadline for submission. All applications will be read by multiple faculty members.  All applicants are then presented to the entire faculty. The faculty will select only 15 applicants for on-site interviews. We believe that careful review prior to the interview invitations can both save applicants money and avoid time away from their residency.  It is our hope that applicants recognize that this process takes time and invitations will not be extended until Tuesday, January 21, 2020. 

Applicants selected to interview will receive additional information at the time the invitation is extended. Please be advised we schedule through Thalamus to make it easier and more convenient for the applicants. Thalamus scheduling will open on Thursday, January 23, 2020 at 7:00am (MST)

Interviews will be held on Mondays with an optional social event on Sunday night. It is our hope that if your schedule allows, you can enjoy some of the "Greatest Snow on Earth" prior to the interview. 

The dates of interviews are coordinated among the western fellowship programs to the extent possible to decrease the travel burden for applicants.
