Infectious Diseases Fellowship Application and Selection :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

Application and Interview Process

To meet the needs of our applicants, our infectious diseases fellowship program participates in the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) and the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).  We request four letters of recommendation (one of which should be from your Residency Program Director).
Once your completed application has been reviewed, selected applicants will be extended invitations to interview and will be expected to provide the program with three available dates they can visit. We are happy to provide the hotel reservation and will send the confirmation with the interview itinerary. We would like to extend an invitation to have dinner with current fellows, which will be arranged for the night prior to the interview day. The interview day will include a tour of our clinical and research facilities, interviews with our faculty and lunch with one or more of our current faculty and fellows. Please expect to be with us from approximately 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Interviews interviews will be conducted from late August through mid-November yearly.

International Applicants

In accordance with Nationwide Children’s Hospital policy, international medical graduates must have a J-1 VISA, which will require approval from the Designated Institutional Officer and the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program Director.   Nationwide Children's Hospital does not sponsor H-1 VISAs.

In order to become certified in Infectious Diseases by the American Board of Pediatrics, all physicians graduated from medical school outside the United States or Canada must have successfully completed a residency program at an accredited pediatric or IM/PEDS residency training program in the United States or Canada following graduation from medical school and prior to submitting an application for fellowship training at Nationwide Children’ Hospital.  Other qualified internationally trained physicians will also be considered for fellowship training.

We appreciate your interest in our Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program and look forward to reviewing your completed application.
