Application Information

How to Apply

All applications to the Pediatric Residency Program at the University of Virginia are received through ERAS, the Electronic Residency Application Service administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges. ERAS transmits application materials from Deans’ offices to residency programs via the Internet.

Your ERAS application should include:

  • Submission of application deadline: December 15, 2022
  • 3 Letters of recommendation
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Full medical school transcript
  • An NRMP number (requires completed NRMP application)
  • USMLE scores – Completion/Upload of Step 1 prior to interview & Completion/Upload of Step 2 CK before February 13th 2023. 
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (formerly Dean’s Letter)
  • Personal statement

For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will be collecting and reviewing data from applicants’ supplemental ERAS applications. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement; completion of the supplemental ERAS application is optional.

In its second year of use, the supplemental ERAS application is designed to help applicants share more information about themselves and assist our program in finding applicants that fit our program’s setting and mission. There is no cost to applicants and participation is optional.

The supplemental ERAS application provides:

  • geographic preferences (by division and by urban or rural setting);
  • information about an applicant’s most meaningful experiences and other impactful life events, if applicable; and
  • program signals.

The supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between August 1 and September 16, 2022.

Learn more about the AAMC supplemental ERAS application.

For Child Neurology applicants: Child Neurology Track (Neurology Program 1737185C0) in ERAS. Please do not apply to the regular categorical pediatrics track.
