Interviews and Tours
Once applications have been reviewed by the Department of Pediatrics Housestaff Selection Committee, candidates will be invited to visit for interviews and tours of the medical campus.
Because of the large number of applications received each year via ERAS, not all qualified candidates can be accommodated with interviews and tours. We ask for your understanding in this regard.
Terms of Appointment
Initial appointments to the training program are made through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and commence before July 1 of each academic year.
Residents are reappointed by the Chairman upon recommendation of the Director of Medical Education on a yearly basis assuming satisfactory clinical and academic performance.
A sample contract outlining terms and conditions of appointment is available for your review at http://gme.med.nyu.edu
On rare occasions, special arrangements may be made for an exceptionally qualified candidate desiring only one year of pediatrics as a prelude to advanced level training in other disciplines.
Such arrangements must be made with and approved by the Residency Director prior to entry. However, the general pediatric training program does not have available and does not offer preliminary positions through the NRMP.
IMGs - Applicants from Medical Schools Outside the U.S.
For International Medical Graduates, the Department accepts applications from highly qualified, ECFMG certified candidates who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States under the J-1 visitor exchange program only.
Prior clinical experience in the US, UK or Canada is strongly encouraged.
Please note that ECFMG certification is essential in order for our Housestaff Selection Committee to consider an International Medical Graduate's application.
We do not employ a "cut off" score for performance on USMLE examinations, but the Selection Committee will give preference to candidates who demonstrate a high level of achievement on standardized tests of the basic and clinical sciences.
The Department of Pediatrics does not offer externships or observerships for International Graduates.
The NYU Medical Center is an equal opportunity employer.
