Cincinnati Children’s has approximately 204 residents (including pediatrics and the combined programs). Each year, approximately 40 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.

The Cincinnati Children’s pediatric residency program participates in ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). As part of your application, we ask for your USMLE score report, medical school transcript, Dean’s letter, personal statement, and 3 letters of recommendation. For more information about the ERAS application process, contact your Dean’s office. Applications for the 2020 - 2021 academic year will be accepted until November 1st, 2019.

International Medical Graduates must be ECFMG certified and must be eligible for a J-1 Visa. The program only reviews applications submitted through ERAS.
