Frequently Asked Questions

Does your program guarantee a position for the preliminary pediatric training?
Our program is not formally integrated with the Johns Hopkins Pediatric residency program. Therefore, you must apply separately through ERAS for the program.  However, the preliminary training may be completed at any accredited institution.
If selected to interview for the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Neurology program, we can assist interested candidates with coordinating arrangements for interviews with the Pediatrics program at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Can I submit materials in addition to what is required by the AUPN?
Yes, you can send us any additional materials you wish. These items can be submitted directly to our Medical Training Program Administrator, Sandy Vieyra.  Please make sure items are in PDF format and you may email them to:

When and how will you notify candidates about interviews?
Our Residency Selection Committee will begin reviewing completed applications in late September, 2017. Candidates selected for interviews will be notified mid-October, 2017 primarily by email until our interview slots are filled.
Once our Interview slots are filled, the committee will keep a handful of applications on a waitlist.

Does your program accept International Medical Graduates?

What kind of visa do you offer foreign nationals?

Do you have USMLE score requirements and other specific qualifications for IMGs?
We do not have specific requirements for foreign medical graduates. Every application is considered on an individual basis. However, all IMGs must have be certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).
