The National Council of Pediatric Hospital Medicine fellowship directors is committed to fostering inclusion, recruitment, and retainment of a diverse workforce which will meet the healthcare needs of children in the 21st century. We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds (inclusive of age, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and socioeconomic status) to apply.
PHM fellowship applicants,
Welcome! We hope that this website will provide you guidance in navigating the PHM fellowship application process.
Thank you so much for your interest in Pediatric Hospital Medicine! We cannot wait to help train the future leaders of our field!
On the phmfellows.org website, please find the PHM Fellowship Shared Application, as well as the Program List 2020-21. When reviewing, please make note of which programs are not accepting applicants in the 2020-21 cycle and which programs accept visas.
We agree that it is cumbersome to email your application to each program individually and to have your letter writers do the same. Until >75% of PHM fellowship programs are ACGME-accredited, we are unable to participate in ERAS. We hope to pursue this in the next few years. While we are not in ERAS, we are aligning with their timeline, and we do participate in NRMP.
Important Application Dates:
The application is available as of Mon June 15, 2020. The first offers of interviews will occur starting Wed August 12, 2020, which is the same as ERAS this year. Applicants will have 72 hours to reply to interview offers. Additional interviews will be offered on a rolling basis after the August 12th date.
Important NRMP Dates:
9/23/20 – Match Opens at 12:00 p.m. ET
10/28/20 – Ranking Opens at 12:00 p.m. ET
11/18/20 – Programs: Quota Change Deadline at 11:59 p.m. ET
12/2/20 – Rank Order List Certification Deadline at 9:00 p.m. ET
12/16/20 – Match Day at 12:00 p.m. ET!
We ask that applicants only apply to programs in which they have a genuine interest. Similarly, please only accept interview offers at programs you see yourself joining. Interviews will occur virtually this year.
There will be applicant information sessions held virtually this summer, most likely July, so please stay tuned for these; we will announce them on the AAPHOSPMED listserv (https://services.aap.org/en/community/aap-sections/hospital-medicine/ ). We plan to conduct general overview sessions, as well as regional sessions, virtually. Please also feel free to contact a program to conduct a pre-interview season phone call if you have specific questions about that program.
Good luck and we look forward to “seeing” all of you this year!
Sincerely, the PHM Fellowship Directors Council and the Marketing and Recruitment Subcommittee
