Applicants for a position in the pediatric ID fellowship training program are encouraged to apply through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Our interview dates for 2013 positions will be in December 2011, January and February 2012. We try to interview applicants on Tuesdays during this time so they can experience our clinical and research training conferences. If these dates are not possible, we will work with your schedule.
If you are unable to make these interview dates and are offered an interview, we will work with your schedule. If you are traveling to Seattle before the official application opens via ERAS and would like to be considered for an interview, please contact us directly to discuss your potential application. Minorities, under-represented in academic pediatrics, are strongly encouraged to apply.
Selection of applicants is usually completed by the beginning of February of the year before the training program would begin (e.g. February 2011 for fellowship training beginning in July 2012). To be eligible for the Pediatric Infectious Disease Fellowship, funded by the National Institutes of Health, either United States citizenship or permanent residency is required. Support is provided by NIH-sponsored training grants or awards from private foundations. Seattle Children’s Hospital is an equal opportunity employer.
Documents to submit via ERAS include:
- The completed Common Application Form
- At least 3 letters of recommendation (including a program director's letter)
- A personal statement about why you are interested in a career in infectious disease
- A photograph
- USMLE and /or COMPLEX transcripts
- MSPE/Dean’s letter and medical school transcripts
