How to Apply
We are currently accepting applications for our categorical program and advanced position.
The Categorical Program in Child Neurology at Boston Medical Center is a five-year program that allows the trainee to do two years of pediatrics (June 2015 - June 2017) and three years of child neurology (July 2017 - June 2020). At the end of teh program the trainee is board eligible for board certification in both child neurology and pediatrics. The first two years of training are in the Boston Combined Residency Program Urban Health Advocacy Track (UHAT). The final three years are in Pediatric Neurology, the first year being in adult neurology and the final two years are in Pediatric Neurology. We recommend that anyone interested in this track apply to the BCRP UHAT track (1259320C1) and the categorical Pediatric Neurology track (1257185C0). Candidates to this program need to be approved by both the Pediatrics and Pediatric Neurology program
The Advanced Position (Advanced Pediatric Neurology track - 1257185A0) requires a minimum of two years of training in pediatrics before entering our program. Training in our child neurology will begin at the end of June 2017. Candidates who are currently in pediatric training program may apply. Candidates who have not completed two years of pediatric residency, should apply to other two-year pediatric residency programs. You should be aware that there are less than thirty of these slots in the United States and they are very competitive.
The Reserved Position is not available in this year's match (2015). We will have an opening in 2016 and interviews for that position will commence in the autumn of 2015. This position is open to candidates who will have completed two years of pediatric training in an ACGME accredited program before June 30, 2016.
Some candidates have chosen to train first in pediatrics and apply for child neurology training in their intern year for an advanced position or in their senior year for a reserved position when we have had same year openings.
The Pediatric Neurology match will be completed through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Please visit their website for application instructions. You will need to register for the 2015 NRMP match and complete a MyERAS application.
Applicants using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and applying for Pediatric Neurology Residency should complete their MyERAS application, but DO NOT need to mail a hard copy to AUPN.
We will consider offering an interview date subsequent to receiving a full application packet from ERAS.
