    Apply to the MD / PhD Program

    Each year, approximately 33 categorical pediatric appointments are made to the PL-1 class through the National Resident Matching Program. Prospective new residents are selected by a committee of full-time faculty, chief residents and house officers from each training level. 

    Cincinnati Children’s pediatric residency program participates in ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). For more information, contact the dean’s office at your college of medicine or contact our house staff coordinator, Diane Skeen, at 513 -636-4315 or toll free at 800-344-2462, ext. 4315.

    Applicants are encouraged to make a personal visit to Cincinnati to meet the residents and faculty and tour our facilities. Finalist candidates will complete a two-day interview prior to selection. The first day will be a clinical interview, and the second day is a reverse interview during which the MD / PhD resident candidate interviews researchers.
