Application Process

Fellow applicants usually begin the application process during the fall of their second year of residency training. The expected fellowship training start date is on July 1 following completion of the third year of residency training. Application materials must be submitted electronically via ERAS.

Upon receipt of all required documentations via ERAS, applications will undergo an initial review process. Selected applicants will receive notification to schedule a personal interview at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital. The visit usually lasts one full day, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m., and generally occurs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between mid-December to early April. Available dates for interviews are scheduled on a first-come-first-reserved basis. As interview dates fill up quickly, we strongly encourage applicants to initiate the scheduling process as soon as they receive a formal interview invitation.

Prior to the NRMP Rank List due date, a Fellow Selection Committee will meet in early April to formally evaluate all interviewed candidates and to formulate a ranking list. Candidates will be notified of the match results in mid-May by NRMP.

Questions regarding fellowship application procedures should be addressed to the Fellowship Director or Coordinator.

Policy on Hiring Non-Tobacco Users

University Hospitals is committed to the health and wellness of our employees, our patients and our community. As part of these efforts, effective January 1, 2012, we will only hire candidates that do not use tobacco products. All candidates will be required to confirm their non-tobacco use when expressing interest for a job opportunity. Selected candidates for hire will be tested for tobacco use as part of the pre-employment lab screening process already in place.
