Johns Hopkins Visiting Resident Elective Program to Promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Pediatric Subspecialties

Bloomberg Building

The Johns Hopkins Children’s Center values diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are thrilled to welcome residents who are committed to addressing health care disparities to apply for pediatric subspecialty elective rotations!

The Visiting Resident Elective is for residents interested in fellowship training in adolescent medicine, pediatric cardiology, emergency medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general pediatrics, hematology/oncology, infectious disease, intensive care, neonatology, nephrology, and pulmonary medicine.

Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a 4-week visiting rotation in their subspecialty of interest while also having the opportunity to participate in various community engagement activities hosted by the Johns Hopkins House Staff Diversity Council and The Department of Pediatrics Diversity and Inclusion Council.

We are providing a stipend of $2000 for qualified residents to help defray the cost of an away rotation. Additionally, we will provide up to $500 to assist with cost of travel. Applications will be considered based on merit and availability. We will only consider applicants seeking to begin fellowship in July 2024.

*Applicants from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine are encouraged to apply! According to the AAMC “Underrepresented in medicine means those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.”

Eligibility Requirements

  • Applicants must be in good standing at an ACGME-accredited U.S. residency program and plan to complete training in a pediatric subspecialty fellowship. Of note, this program is open to Pediatrics and Combined Medicine-Pediatrics Residents. *The Adolescent Medicine fellowship program will also consider Family Medicine and Internal Medicine residents.
  • Applicants should apply in their PGY-2 year (peds) or PGY-3 year during the summer/fall preceding their ERAS fellowship application.
  • The timing of the rotation will be subject to completing the necessary licensure/credentialing steps and final approval by your home institution.

Application Process

  • Applications will open annually beginning October 1st and will close on January 2nd.

We aim to inform residents of application status by mid-January, if we can honor your elective request based on eligibility, availability for the dates requested, and availability of designated funds to provide the stipend.
