Application

Submission DEADLINE: DECEMBER 1, 2022

The Brown University Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Applications are accepted from graduates of approved medical schools exclusively through the AAMC Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). MD and DO graduates from US medical schools register for ERAS through their Dean’s Office.

All interviews are virtual for the 2022-23 recruitment season. We work with information from NRMP, ERAS, and national associations of program directors, as well as our own institution, Rhode Island’s Department of Health, and the CDC to maintain a recruitment plan that reflects the need for a safe and equitable process, and align recommendations with the Coalition for Physician Accountability.

Last, please note that Medicine-Pediatrics as a specialty is not participating in supplemental applications or signaling for the 2022-23 recruitment season.

LORs, USMLEs & "Required"

We ask applicants to submit four letters of recommendation (LORs) in addition to their Dean’s letter.

We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic may have limited clinical experiences to the extent that some students may not feel they can identify four letter-writers. In this event, three letters can be submitted and should include at least one from Pediatrics and at least one from Internal Medicine (options include a letter from the department chair, department or clerkship director, or other faculty you’ve worked with in the specialty.)

We review ALL applications holistically; we do not require Step 2 scores for initial review of applications.

INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS

The Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) serves as the designated Dean’s Office for all IMGs, including USIMGs. Please be advised that our program is not able to support H-1 visas. US clinical experience is strongly recommended.

invitation to interview

Per recommendations of the national associations of program directors, we will send interview invitations no sooner than October 11th, 2022. To minimize interruptions in applicants’ daytime schedules, we strive to send interview invitations in the evening on work days only.

Virtual interviews will be held on Mondays in November and December 2022, and January 2023, as below. 

  • November 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th
  • December 5th, 12th, 19th
  • January 9th 

INTERVIEW DAY

For the 2022-23 interview season, we are working on the best virtual options to give you a chance to interact with residents, faculty, and staff, to experience our clinic, hospitals, and learning environments, and to get to know Providence and our community.

Most interview days last from 7:45am to 1:45pm EST; we anticipate offering two dates (12/19 and 1/9) with later start times to better accommodate interviewees outside the Eastern time zone. 

Pre-interview virtual social events with our residents will be held on Sunday evenings from 6pm to 8pm prior to interview days. 

INTERVIEW CONFIRMATION

An email confirming your interview date will be sent to you shortly before your interview day.
