UW Pediatric Residency Training

2022-2023 Application Season Update:

Our program will only be offering virtual interviews for this season. We agree virtual interviews are more equitable for applicants and programs for both restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic and cost savings. Virtual interviews also help to decrease medical students’ time away from clinical training and significantly decrease the environmental impact of travel. Interviews will be held live via Zoom.

Our program is participating in the ERAS supplemental application for the 2022-2023 season with adherence to the AAMC code of conduct. Please see our “How to Apply” section for more details.

We are working on programming to ensure we can share our residency family with you and have you share yourselves with us!

Please email us with any questions, concerns, or ideas.

Consider reading the virtual interview tips (PDF) and AAMC Prep for Success in your Virtual Interview (PDF) from the AAMC for applicants.
