Application Process


In accordance with national recommendations from the Association of Pediatric Program Directors, all interviews will be held virtually. There will be no in-person interview days. 

Thank you for your interest in our program! We use the Associaton of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Paper applications will not be accepted.

ERAS opens for application submission in July 2023. Earlier submissions are strongly encouraged.

Application Deadline: 10/19/23

Applicant Review and Matching

All applications will be reviewed by the Fellowship Program Director. We offer on-site interviews at Stanford to selected applicants which are scheduled from September through early November. We only offer interviews to applicants who have submitted a complete ERAS application. On the day of the interview, applicants will meet with the Fellowship Program Director, current fellows and several other faculty.

The Pediatric Pulmonary Fellowship Program at Stanford accepts 2 fellows per year and participates in the National Resident Match Program (NRMP). Match results are available in December.
