Application Process

Applications for Child Neurology PGY 3 beginning July 2020,  will be accepted beginning on September 15 – October 31, 2017.  All applications must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  Applications submitted to ERAS after deadline may not be accepted or reviewed.

Apply to Child Neurology PGY 3

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.  
Please note the following:  In addition to the ERAS application you send to Child Neurology a separate ERAS application must be submitted to Pediatrics as well.
