Each program recruits, interviews and matches with their fellows.
The GME office will send an “institutional letter of offer” on Cincinnati Children’s letterhead to all clinical fellowship positions. The letter will be signed by Thomas DeWitt, MD, FAAP, Designated Institutional Official (DIO) and the appropriate program director. Prospective fellows must accept or decline the offer in writing.
International Medical Graduates
An international medical graduate (IMG) is a physician who completed medical school outside of the United States or Canada. All IMGs must have a valid ECFMG certificate to be accepted for training in a graduate medical education program in the United States. The ECFMG certificate is issued by the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates after an IMG has passed USMLE Step 1, Step 2-CK and Step 2-CS. An ECFMG certificate is required to obtain an Ohio license or training certificate. A copy of the ECFMG certificate must be provided to the GME office.
Citizens of the United States are international graduates if they completed medical school outside of the United States or Canada.
International Medical Graduates recruited for residency or fellowship positions will be contacted by the GME office to begin the appropriate visa process.

In late March, the GME office will send each incoming fellow an electronic contract packet via the Cincinnati Children's MedHub system.
