All applications to the Pediatric Residency Program at Children's are processed through the Electronic Resident Application System (ERAS). The application is available at www.aamc.org/eras.
Applicants register with ERAS through their medical schools, complete the ERAS application, and choose to send an application to Children's Hospital Oakland.
Applications are considered complete when they include two letters of recommendation or a Dean's Letter in addition to all parts of the standard ERAS application.
Application Deadline: December 7, 2012
No more applications will be downloaded from ERAS after December 7.
Applicant Review and Interview
In February, applicants enter their rank list, and our Intern Selection Committee meets to rank applicants. Completed applications are screened, and applicants are informed by email if they are being invited to interview.
In March, applicants and programs are informed of the Match by the NRMP. If we select you for an interview, we will contact you. You may schedule your interview by contacting the program coordinator, Katherine Castillo, for any day between November 1 and mid-January.
If you're interested in transferring to our program, we periodically have open second or third- year positions. These openings are generally for the beginning of academic year, but they occasionally occur at other times. Applicants must be in good standing at their previous program. Please contact us if you are interested.
If you plan to visit Children's, there are many hotels available in Oakland and Berkeley. Although travel expenses are not reimbursed, many hotels in the area offer a discount rate for people with ties to Children's. more>>
