Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has procedures in place to accept visiting residents and fellows and to allow our residents and fellows to work at other institutions as part of their training.
We receive many requests for visiting resident and fellow rotations. To ensure that such rotations do not conflict with the training of our own residents and fellows, the appropriate program director must determine whether the department can accommodate your request. Upon approval of the program director at CCHMC and at your sponsoring institution, an affiliation agreement must be completed. Contact the CCHMC Office of Graduate Medical Education or the program director's assistant to begin this process. Processing of the request may take at least three months.
Ohio License / Training Certificate
Every rotator must have an Ohio licensure or training certificate by his or her start date. You should apply as early as possible. It takes the board at least eight weeks to process such applications. The State Medical Board of Ohio will send an application acknowledgement letter to each resident or fellow. You may not start a rotation without that letter. Each resident or fellow rotator must complete the entire application process even if the rotation is over before the process is complete.
Authorized Resident Rotation
Every rotator must complete and submit a Data for Authorized Resident Rotation form to the GME office at least 30 days before your rotation.

A copy of the resident’s or fellow’s CV and ECFMG certificate (for international graduates) must accompany the form.
Visiting rotators who are residents or fellows in a program outside the United States must have a valid ECFMG certificate. International trainees must also obtain a J-1 clinical visa to participate in a US graduate medical education program − even for rotations.
Physicians on observerships are not permitted to participate in hands-on patient care; therefore, they do not need an Ohio training certificate or a J-1 clinical visa.
