Application Process and Requirements


Applicants will be solicited and accepted in the Fall of each year through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The program director and the faculty will review applications and those applications deemed superior would be asked to come for an interview between August and November of each year. After interviews are completed the faculty meets to discuss all applicants and the decision is based on the opinion of the faculty. The program participates in the National Resident Matching Program for Pediatric Sleep fellows.
