LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This
  • New this year, matching will be done through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  


  • This year our match will be simultaneous with the match for General Pediatrics. We have 2 types of positions open:  

1) Combined Program in Pediatrics and Neurology:

Apply to the Categorical (aka “Dummy” Categorical) Program in which the match is for 2 years of general pediatrics in the Boston Combined Residency Program in Pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital and Boston Medical Center, and 3 years of child neurology at Boston Children’s Hospital.  We have up to 4 positions available in this tract.

Please note that you will still need to apply separately to the Pediatrics program.

 2) Child Neurology Only:

Apply to the “Advanced Placement” program through NRMP for 3 years of Child Neurology only. We have at least 1 position in this tract.

Thus, we have a total of 5 residency positions available in Child Neurology – up to 4 of these will be filled by applicants who simultaneously matched in General Pediatrics here at Boston Children’s Hospital, and 1 or more who did their Pediatric training elsewhere.

 We encourage applicants to apply for both the Categorical as well as Advanced positions.

  • Once your application is complete and the deadline has passed, it will be forwarded to the Residency Selection Committee for review. Applicants who are considered to be strong candidates for the program will be contacted to arrange for a personal interview.
  • If you have questions, or would like additional information, please contact:

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
