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 Friday, December 15, 2017.

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 Friday, January 19, 2018. 

Applicants selected for interviews will receive additional information at the time of invitation regarding the interview visit.  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.

In the event that an invited applicant does not want to interview, we will offer alternate applicants an interview.

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