Child Neurology Residency
There are four categorical child neurology positions a year. Candidates thus match simultaneously to two years of Stanford Pediatrics followed by three years of Child Neurology, through one centralized National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) application. All applicants are required to use this service.
The application process begins in autumn. Applicants must register with NRMP by October 31.
For the current interview season, all interviews will be conducted virtually in accordance with ACGME guidelines. Interviews for child neurology and pediatrics are combined over 2 consecutive days for invited applicants and will be scheduled on select dates in November and December.
Other details about the Match Schedule are available on the NRMP web site. In general, all application materials are processed through NRMP. If desired, applicants may contact us directly and send appropriate supplementary materials. This may include curriculum vitae, publications, or additional letters of references.
Interview is by invitation only and is an essential part of the application.
International Medical Students
We accept applications from international medical school graduates, although the application process is extremely competitive. Ours is a small program that draws scores of applications, including many from the top medical schools in the U.S. Having had hands-on recent clinical experience in the U.S. is mandatory. Only those with exceptional credentials are invited for interview. An international medical school graduate must have a valid ECFMG certificate, completed USMLE Part III, and have had two years of pediatric residency training prior to commencement of child neurology training. Please note that Stanford University will NOT sponsor trainees for an H-1B visa.
