Allergy, Immunology and Pulmonary Medicine | Fellowships | Application Process

Washington University School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, and the Division of Pediatric Allergy, Immunology, and Pulmonary Medicine all strive to provide excellence in graduate medical education. Many factors contribute to the realization of this goal. Residency and fellowship programs at this campus have traditionally attracted very strong applicant pools, and we are committed to the practice of carefully screening and selecting those applicants who are best qualified to participate and succeed in the programs based on their academic achievements and personal and professional characteristics.

All applicants must provide the review committee with the following:

The Pulmonology Fellowship Training Program is a three-year program offered for advanced, subspecialty training beyond the residency level. The program is designed to provide pediatricians with extensive training and experience in basic research, clinical investigation, and diagnostic procedures, leading to board certification in pediatric pulmonology. It provides an extraordinary environment for the development of pulmonary clinicians and physician-scientists. Our program is supported by National Institutes of Health training grants (T32), which have strict citizenship requirements. Thus, individuals applying to the Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Training Program should be a citizen or a non-citizen national of the United States, or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence on a J-1 Visa. The following categories of applicants are eligible for consideration for appointment to the pediatric pulmonology fellowship program:

  • Graduates of medical school in the United States or Canada accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or American Osteopathic Association (AOA), and who have successfully completed or are in the process of completing residency training in pediatrics.
  • Graduates of medical schools and residency outside the United States and Canada who have completed Steps 1, 2, and 3 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), recently received a currently valid certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), or possess a full and unrestricted license to practice medicine in a United States licensing jurisdiction, and who have completed or are in the process of completing pediatric residency training. Applicants must be on a J-1 Visa.
  • American citizen graduates from medical schools outside the United States and Canada who have successfully completed the licensure examination in a United States jurisdiction in which the laws and regulations provide that a full and unrestricted license to practice will be granted without further examination after successful completion of a specified period of graduate medical education.
