  • Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Residency Program at Memorial University Medical Center. We accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Please contact ERAS online. Paper applications, faxes, and/or emailed applications are not accepted.
    We begin accepting applications for the upcoming academic year in September. A complete application consists of the following:

    • Three letters of recommendation, one of which must be from a pediatrician.

    If you are selected for an interview, you will receive an email to contact the program coordinator and schedule your interview. Approximately 130 applicants are invited for interviews each year from November through January, and we participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).
