Foreign Applicants

Non-U.S. trained physicians and non-U.S. citizen/permanent residents may apply to the training program. Because some sources of training program funding are limited to U.S. citizens/permanent residents, the availability of slots for non-citizens/permanent residents is limited. Applicants should have completed Steps 1 and 2 of the USMLE at the time of application and be eligible for a license to practice in Massachusetts upon completion of all steps. Applicants who seek to become board eligible in Pediatric Infectious Diseases would have to be board certified in Pediatrics in the United States or Canada, however this is not a requirement for application to the fellowship program.

All Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship Programs will be moving to a fall match for July 2015 positions.  Applications and supporting material must be submitted through ERAS. Applications will be accepted from July 1, 2014 through September 15, 2014. Interviews will be held August 1, 2014 through October 1, 2014. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply early.
