Our three-year fellowship seeks physicians who will have completed two to three years of training in an ACGME-approved pediatric residency program and who are eligible to sit for the American Board of Pediatrics certifying examination.
American medical graduates must have an unrestricted license in order to practice in the State of Pennsylvania and graduate medical training licenses to practice medicine in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Acceptance into the program may be delayed until all parts of the National Board Examination have been passed.
Foreign medical graduates must have a valid ECFMG certificate, U.S. pediatric training, pediatric training, a graduate medical training license, and an unrestricted license in order to practice in the State of Pennsylvania. As a result, acceptance into the program may be delayed until all parts of the National Board Examination have been passed.
