ERAS Application Process
If you are interested in applying to the ACGME Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship Program at Stanford, our program will use the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). All positions will be posted in the NRMP system. Please note: Paper applications will NOT be accepted.

Deadline: ERAS applications with all supporting materials should be uploaded no later than August 15th, the year prior to the planned start date of the fellowship. Earlier submissions are encouraged.
The Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship Program at Stanford accepts 2 fellows per year for a maximum total of 6 fellows.
We will be matching 2 fellows for 2018 and participating in the National Resident Match Program (NRMP). Information on the Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship match may be found on their website and opens in July each year. The Fall Match lists are due typically in mid-November with results published by mid-December.
Additional basic information about our program is available at FREIDA. Our number, for the search box is 3260521055.
All applications will be read initially by the fellowship program director as well as one or more faculty members of the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology. We will offer interviews in Palo Alto to selected candidates and these will be scheduled mid-September through early November of the year prior to the fellowship start date on selected Tuesdays. We will only offer interviews to candidates who have a complete ERAS application. On the day of the interview, candidates meet with the fellowship director, division chief, fellows and with several other faculty, pending clinical commitments. Candidates may be scheduled to attend one of the fellow or clinical conferences, depending on the day of the visit.
We encourage candidates to contact the program director, faculty, or fellows after their interview with any follow-up questions they may have that were not completely covered during the visit; however, know that we minimize initiating contact with candidates after the interview to comply with NRMP policies to avoid pressuring candidates as they make their ranking choices.
International Medical Graduates (IMG)
The Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship Program at Stanford welcomes applications from IMGs who have completed an ACGME-accredited general pediatrics residency. We welcome well qualified candidates who may require VISA sponsorship. Learn about further Graduate Medical Education office (GME) requirements and application procedures for IMGs.
