How to Apply

ERAS logoIf you are interested in applying to the Pediatric Residency Program, applications are accepted through ERAS. Please include your USMLE scores, Dean's letter, three letters of recommendation, and a personal statement.

In compliance with institutional, state, and national recommendations, our program will be solely conducting virtual interviews for the 2023-2024 residency NRMP Match cycle. We will not offer in-person interviews in support of minimizing health risks associated with travel during this coronavirus pandemic and to provide an equitable interview experience to all applicants.

We will interview approximately 200 candidates for 15 positions beginning Oct. 23 and ending mid-January. Orientation for all new residents begins June 24, 2024, so you must be available for that start date and be licensed in Iowa by June 30.

Applications must be received by Dec. 1, 2023. Interviews will begin Oct. 23 and will conclude Jan. 19, 2024.
