Frequently Asked Questions
About the fellowship and application
Q: How do I apply?
A: We accept applications only through ERAS, beginning around July 1 of each year.
Q: Do you accept fellows outside of the Match?
A: We take fellows only through the National Residency Match Program.
Q: How many fellows do you accept each year?
Q: How long is your fellowship?
A: A minimum of three years is required for ABIM board eligibility. Most of our fellows stay for one or more extra years, depending on funding availability.
Q: Do you sponsor any visas?
A: Yes, we accept J-1 ECFMG visas and H1B visas. Extremely gifted and unique applicants who are outside of J-1 ECFMG or H1B will be considered in rare instances.
Q: What if I am mainly interested in research?
A: Our fellowship has a new T-32 track that allows you to start research in your second year of fellowship instead of your third year. You have to be selected by a committee in your first year to participate in this track.
Q: Is there opportunity to sub-specialize at Hopkins
A: Yes. All of our sub-specialty fellowship programs prioritize internal candidates.
Q: What happens to my application?
A: After an application is complete, each is reviewed by the program director. Promising candidates are invited for a visit during one of our four interview days either in September or October. We receive about 500 applications each year and invite about 68 people to visit.
Q: What happens at the visit?
A: The purpose of the visit is to tell you about and show you the program, and get to know your interests. Candidates go to dinner with a group of current fellows the evening before, attend breakout sessions on three of our sub-specialties of their choosing, interview with four faculty members, and have a lunch with the fellows. After, lunch the candidates go on a tour of the hospital, attend brief research opportunity presentations and see a presentation on Baltimore. There is opportunity to meet with other faculty if desired. The day ends in the early afternoon.
