All Pediatric Neurology residency programs have transitioned from the San Francisco Match to the main residency match administered by the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). All applicants will submit applications through the NRMP associated application service, ERAS, for the match.
Our program has 3 residents per year. Two are "categorical" (combined with General Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins) and one is "advanced" (2 years of General Pediatrics elsewhere). Many of our "advanced" matched residents train in Baltimore at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore and University of Maryland, but that is not required. We accept foreign medical graduates, pediatric residents, and pediatricians due to this flexibility. Ware are accepting applications for the 2017 class, but also have a single unexpected opening ("reserve") for 2016 - contact Dr. Kossoff if you are interested.
We anticipate contacting prospective candidates regarding interviews by early October. Around this time, we strongly urge you to check both e-mail and telephone machines daily for messages regarding interviews, however, our primary method of notification regarding selection for interviews will be via e-mail messages.
Interviews with Pediatric Neurology Faculty will be conducted on Thursday afternoons, starting with an introductory lecture by the Directors at 11 am and lunch with the current residents at 12 noon. In conjunction with the Adult Neurology applicants, you are invited to dinner with our residents Wednesday evening. Interviews for the 2 categorical positions will be arranged by our program administrator (Ms. Sandy Vieyra) to coincide with General Pediatrics, however you must apply to their program separately to be considered. Pediatrics interviews are Wednesdays (listed below as the first date of two):
For the 2014 Match, our interview dates are:
- November 13-14, 2014
- November 20-21, 2014
- December 11-12, 2014
- January 8-9, 2015
Arrangements for interviews outside of the scheduled dates may be negotiated, but our preference is that you participate in the scheduled dates for a better overall experience. We encourage applicants looking as well at our "advanced" position to consider contacting Sinai Hospital and/or University of Maryland - many interview on the preceding Wednesday for a 3-day interview experience.
