Child Neurology Residency

How To Apply

Please note, due to COVID-19 restrictions, all interviews for the AY22 cycle will be conducted virtually - more information to follow.

Applicants to the five-year Pediatrics-Child Neurology Categorical Residency Program (NRMP ID#1160185C0) must apply through the National Residency Matching Program. Our program only accepts applications through ERAS.  Applicants to this program simultaneously match into our Categorical Pediatrics Residency for the initial two-years* followed by three-years of Child Neurology training. 

*The preliminary two-years of Pediatrics is designed in compliance with the training requirements for general pediatrics for the Pediatrics-Child Neurology Pathway as identified by the American Board of Pediatrics.  

The University of Chicago offers combined Pediatric/Child Neurology Interview days which take place October - December.  Each year we match two candidates into our incoming class. 

Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis as of the program start date.  If sponsorship is needed, J-1 visas are preferred.


The University of Chicago Child Neurology Residency Training Program interviews are by invitation only and will be scheduled through the web-based ERAS scheduling module.
