Fellowship Application Process

There are generally two categorical positions available each year in the UNM Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Program. Eligible fellowship candidates are required to have completed three years of pediatric training in an ACGME approved residency program prior to beginning fellowship. Foreign medical school applicants with a J1 visa and US Pediatric residency training will be considered for the program. Our program participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP website) as well as the Electronic Residency Application Services (ERAS website) application process.

To acquire information about our program including deadlines please visit the ERAS website, or go to:  www.aamc.org/students/eras.

The following information should be included with your ERAS application:

  • Official medical school transcripts
  • USMLE transcript
  • Current photograph
  • Personal Statement
  • Current Curriculum Vitae
  • At least three letters of recommendation
  • A valid ECFMG certificate (for International Medical Graduates only) - J1 visas are accepted.
  • Include a current copy of your visa if you are not an American citizen or permanent resident

Candidates who are considered to be a good match for the program will be asked to set up a personal interview. The candidate’s interview day will include meetings with the program director, faculty in the neonatology division, prospective research mentors and fellows of the division. Applicants will also tour the NBICU and research laboratories. Additional materials may be requested by the program director when the interview is arranged. Interviews will be held between August and November in the same year prior to the match date in December.
