The UCI Child Neurology Residency Program participates in the National Resident Matching Program. Applications are accepted through ERAS.
We have two Child Neurology tracks including Categorical and Reserved. The Categorical track is a five year training program beginning July 1, 2017, and includes two years in the UCI CHOC Pediatric Residency Program followed by three years of Child Neurology Residency. Categorical applicants must submit applications to the Child Neurology Residency Program only. Applicants invited to interview will interview with both the Pediatric Residency Program and the Child Neurology Program on two separate days. We are also offering one Reserved position which begins July 1, 2017. The Reserved (physician only) position requires applicants will have completed two years of general (preliminary) pediatrics by June 30, 2017.
Residency applicants will provide:
- Dean’s Letter (MSPE) from your medical school.
- Three letters of recommendation. We prefer one letter from neurology faculty who worked closely with you and two letters from faculty of your choosing.
- Scores from Step I of the United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE). We must have your Step I score to consider your application. We do not have a formal screening cutoff for USMLE scores. Note that successful completion of Step II Clinical Knowledge and Clinical Skills is required to begin any of our residency training programs. We also prefer those who passed their USMLE examinations on the first attempt.
The deadline to submit ERAS applications for the Child Neurology Residency Program is December 1, 2016, however, it is recommended to apply by mid-October. Once your application is complete it will be forwarded to the Selection Committee for review.
Applicants selected will be contacted to arrange for an interview
