Morristown Medical Center offers a two-year, accredited pediatric emergency medicine fellowship for emergency medicine-trained physicians, as well as a three-year program for pediatric-trained physicians. The program takes place from July 1 to June 30; the fellowships complement the emergency medicine residency program and enhance our pediatric emergency medicine department services at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical.
Applicants should have outstanding interpersonal and leadership skills. We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP #1394114F0). Applications are only accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Information on ERAS may be obtained through your dean's office. To apply, submit the following items via ERAS:
- Application and personal statement
- Dean’s letter
- Medical school transcript
- Letter of reference from an emergency medicine physician. Applicants currently in post-graduate training must supply a letter of reference from their current program director.
- Two additional current letters of reference. Letters from emergency medicine physicians are preferred; letters from other clinical specialties are certainly acceptable. Other reference sources may be suitable depending on your background.
- A copy of your United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) or Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX) scores (Part I and Part II) sent by the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME) electronically.
Each application is reviewed once it is complete. Interviews for fellowship positions will be granted by invitation. We typically interview candidates on Tuesdays from the first week of November through the end of January.
