Application Process

Our program will be participating in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) for our July 2025 fellowship positions.  

Applications are reviewed by the Fellowship Program Director, Associate Program Director and Program Coordinator. This year, we will be offering virtual Zoom interviews to selected applicants.

Applicants can submit their application materials through ERAS beginning on July 1, 2024.  Our program will only review complete applications.  NRMP Match results will be released in November 2024.

The application deadline for 2025 Fellowship is September 30, 2024.

The ERAS system opens in June for applicants to begin working on their applications. However, applicants will be unable to formally apply to our program (or any other pediatric infectious diseases fellowship program) until July 1, 2024.

Interview days will take place on select Tuesdays during late August through the end of October 2024.

Applicants to the program will be expected to have completed a pediatric residency program approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). 36 months of ACGME residency training in the United States or Canada is required for a California medical license. Applicants who are accepted into the Fellowship Program must apply for a California medical license at least six months in advance of the fellowship start date since it can take a minimum of six months to obtain a license. You must have an active California medical license prior to the starting date of your fellowship. Also, you will need to have a DEA license at the start of fellowship.

Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions.
