Application Process

Pediatric Neurology Application Process

St. Louis Children’s Hospital Ranked #7 in Neurosciences by US News & World Report!

Pediatric Neurology is no longer using the San Francisco Match. Our match is now accomplished through the NRMP. Applications are accepted through the ERAS application service.

Five-year Categorical Training Program: Four categorical slots are available each year allowing Pediatric Neurology residents to also complete their preliminary General Pediatrics training at Washington University in St. Louis. Applicants need only apply to Pediatric Neurology via ERAS for consideration for the five year categorical training program (SEPARATE APPLICATION TO GENERAL PEDIATRICS IS NOT REQUIRED: An interview with General Pediatrics will automatically be granted to those selected to interview for Child Neurology). Please also be advised that, based on categorical status, we recommend but do not require a letter of recommendation from a Pediatrics Chair, Program Director, or Clerkship Director.

Positions Available through 2018 Match:
Four PGY1 categorical positions with preliminary training beginning 7/2018 and Child Neuro beginning 7/2020.

Interview Trip:

The Pediatric Neurology Residency Program and Pediatric Residency Program will provide accommodations for two nights at the Parkway Hotel on the medical center campus during the interview trip. Applicants arriving by airplane can take the Metrolink lightrail from the airport to the Central West End stop. The Parkway Hotel is a short two block walk from that stop. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided on the first day of interviews. Breakfast and lunch are provided on the second day.

Each applicant will typically interview with three pediatric neurology faculty members, including the residency program director. If an applicant would like to meet with a certain faculty member because of particular research or clinical interests please notify the residency coordinator at the time of arranging the interview.

Second-look trips are welcome. Unfortunately, the applicant will need to provide his or her own accommodations for these trips. However, we would be happy to arrange a schedule for the applicant to meet with more faculty and residents.
