Application Information

Eligibility and Selection

All candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • A minimum of three letters of recommendation from referees who are familiar with the candidate’s qualifications, in addition to the MSPE Dean’s letter.  At least one of the three letters should be from a pediatrician or neurologist (ideally at least one from each or from a pediatric neurologist).  We also prefer but do not require that one of the three letters is from the chair of Pediatrics or Neurology (the same letter can serve both roles).
  • Applicants must be able to provide official transcripts from their medical school.

Our program participates in the National Residency Match Program for Pediatric Neurology positions.  We provide a combined five-year training program, two years of Pediatric training followed by three years of Child Neurology training.  Applicants should apply to both, Pediatric Neurology categorical and to the Pediatric categorical through ERAS.  Only one match list (the Child Neurology list) needs to be submitted for our joint program.

All interviews in 2020 will be done via video.  We will coordinate Pediatric and Pediatric Neurology interview schedules of qualified applicants.  The specifics in terms of scheduling are still being worked out.  Please check back here again!

See our detailed Selection Policy. In addition, please view the Graduate Medical Education policy on trainee selection at University of Michigan Graduate Medical Education: Prospective Residents & Fellows.
