Application Requirements


We accept applications for our Fellowship in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine from physicians who will have completed an ACGME-approved residency program and are eligible for board certification. Three letters of recommendation from physicians familiar with the applicant's clinical work should be included with the application (One of the letters of recommendation should be from the Pediatric Program Director). Once all documentation is complete in ERAS, the application will be reviewed and competitive candidates will be offered interviews. Pennsylvania law requires all fellows to have successfully completed all three Steps of the USMLE prior to entering their fellowship. Therefore, to be placed on the NRMP match list, the applicant must have successfully passed all levels of the USMLE prior to the time the match list is to be submitted.

Foreign medical graduates who have satisfied the requirements listed above are invited to apply after they have successfully completed the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) process and have a valid certificate number and U.S. Citizenship/Permanent Residence or a valid U.S. J-1 or H-1B Visa.
