Application Process

 The Saint Louis University Pediatrics Residency Program accepts applications solely through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS)

To be considered complete, your application must have a dean's letter as well as at least two letters of recommendation (preferably one from your chairperson or director of pediatric student education or residency). Passing scores for the USMLE Step 2 and USMLE CS exams must be uploaded to ERAS by January 31, 2024, for our program to consider you for ranking.

Osteopathic Students

COMLEX Level 1 and level 2 scores are accepted in place of USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 scores. Passing scores on the COMLEX 2 CE and COMLEX 2 PE must be uploaded to ERAS by January 31, 2024, for our program to consider you for ranking. We encourage applicants to also take USMLE examinations to facilitate fair comparisons in our ranking process.

International Graduates

You must have a certificate from Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) to apply. Foreign nationals must obtain a permanent resident or J-1 visa sponsored through the ECFMG. J-1 visas require the successful completion of USMLE Steps 1 and 2. Contact the ECFMG for information about visa sponsorship applications and current immigration regulations for postgraduate training.

Deadlines and Interviews

All applications must be submitted by November 4 to be considered for an interview.

We will begin offering interview dates in late October into early November. Interviews will be conducted from November to late January. Every effort will be made to accommodate your schedule. We interview on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, avoiding the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's weeks. Please let us know if there is a particular area of interest that you would like to explore during your visit with us.
