How to Apply

If you are interested in applying to the Child Neurology Residency Program, applications are accepted only through Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). All applicants must also register with the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP #1203185C0). Please, note you only have to apply to the Child Neurology Residency Program.

We will have two categorical child neurology positions available (five-year combined Pediatrics Child Neurology Residency) to start 2023-2024.

We will interview approximately 32 candidates for 2 positions. Orientation for all new residents begins June 24, so you must be available for that start date and be licensed in Iowa by June 30.
