Before applicants can begin the Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine Fellowship Program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, they must have completed either an ACGME-accredited residency training program in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) or a combined program in pediatrics and PM&R. Applicants must also have the necessary credentials to obtain an Ohio State Medical Board license.

Applicants must submit the following materials through ERAS:

  • MyERAS Application
  • Letters of Recommendation (3)
  • Personal Statement
  • Wallet Size Color Photograph
  • USMLE Transcript (Transmitted by the NBME)
  • COMLEX Transcript (Transmitted by the NBOME for DO Applicants)
  • ECFMG Status Report (For International Medical Graduates Only)
  • Curriculum Vitae (Most Recent)


Selected candidates are strongly urged to visit Cincinnati Children’s for personal interviews. The Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation provides candidates with one night’s lodging in Cincinnati. Generally, the interview involves meeting each of the division’s faculty members.


Applications are accepted and positions are filled on an ongoing basis.

Residents completing a combined residency in pediatrics and PM&R are asked to submit inquiries and applications during the fourth year of residency, allowing us to begin research mentorship and project planning during the fifth year of combined training. This is especially important for those residents training at institutions other than Cincinnati Children’s.

The appointment is for one or two years, depending on previous residency training, and begins in July of each year.
