First-year fellowship positions for the 2020-2021 academic year:
- Applications should be submitted online through ERAS.
- Given disruptions associated with COVID-19, endocrinology fellowship programs will not have access to ERAS applications until August 12, 2020.
- We plan to extend interview invitations starting mid-August.
- Since some candidates may have difficulty completing their ERAS applications by August 12th, we will continue to monitor for incoming ERAS applications – and we will continue to extend interview invitations – throughout September and October.
- In accordance with NRMP guidelines, all of our interviews will be virtual/teleconference interviews for the 2020 recruitment season.
- In the 2020 recruiting season (i.e., for positions starting July 2021), we will seek to match one fellow into the three-year clinical/research track and two fellows into the two-year clinical track.
- Priority for the three-year clinical/research track is given to applicants with a strong interest and potential for success in academic medicine and research. Importantly, fellowship trainees on NIH training grants (three-year clinical/research fellows) must be either citizens or permanent residents of the U.S.
- We accept J-1 visas for our two-year clinical fellowship.
- 2020 NRMP timeline: As of May 27, 2020, the NRMP Rank Order List will open September 30, 2020, the NRMP Rank Order List will close November 18, 2020, and Match Day will be December 2, 2020 (see http://www.nrmp.org/match-calendars/).
