Application Process

Thank you for your interest in our fellowship program in General Academic Pediatrics. 

There are three parts to this application:

1. The standard application used throughout the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Please complete it as instructed.

2. A one- to two-page personal statement describing the reason for your interest in this program including your career goals and research interest and how these can be facilitated by acceptance into the General Academic Pediatrics Fellowship Program. You may want to explain how past experiences influenced your decision to apply and mention special areas of interest. Please provide the personal statement in a separate file, do not use the application to provide this detail.

3. We request letters of recommendation and completion of a confidential reference form by three individuals. (NOTE: M.D. applicants will also be asked to list the names and contact information of four clinical references on page four of the application package. For your convenience, individuals submitting the three confidential references may also provide clinical references.)

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Once we have all three parts of your application we will review the application and contact you. If we would like you to come for an interview, our program coordinator will contact you to arrange a date. Interviews are also conducted on a rolling basis. You will be contacted to schedule an interview only after we have received all parts of your application.

Submit completed application packages electronically to Lynette Forrest at lforres2@jhmi.edu with the subject line: GENERAL PEDIATRICS APPLICATION.

We would be happy to talk with you if you would like additional information about our program. Please contact Ms. Forrest at 410-614-3865 or lforres2@jhmi.edu if you wish to schedule a time to talk with one of us about the fellowship program or if you have any questions about the application process.
