Please, apply through ERAS and register for the NRMP. The official name of our program is Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School Child Neurology Program.
No. We begin to receive applications from ERAS and review on a rolling basis but do not make our final decision about interviews until we receive the Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE) from your medical school. The applications review is ongoing but we encourage applicants to apply as early as possible.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications by end of September. Applying by late Septemberwill give applicants the best chances of receiving an interview.
No. We review applications on a rolling basis and complete our final review once MSPE become available. You can submit additional documents when available.
We require 3 letters of recommendation. You are welcome to submit as many letters as ERAS allows you to upload. We will review all letters provided.
No. We ask that the letters you provide are from people who know you well and can speak about you in a knowledgeable manner.
No. Our residents have diverse academic interests and this provides for a balanced residency program.
No. All five years of training are combined in the categorical track. Applicants should submit their application to child neurology. However, interviews with applicants will be provided jointly and coordinated by child neurology. There is no requirement to submit a separate application to pediatrics.
Yes. The number of foreign graduates in the program at any given time varies and completely depends on the quality of the applicants and the match.
No, however, we strongly prefer applicants who are within 5 years of graduation from medical school or who have been continuously involved with clinical work.
US clinical experience is strongly preferred. Observerships, while helpful and potentially productive, are not considered clinical experience.
You must be ECFMG certified when applying but we might review your application if you expect to be certified soon. You must be certified to be considered for ranking.
Yes, we provide both J1 and H1B visas for applicants who match with us. The visa type depends on the individual resident's situation. Partners has an International Office, which handles visas and you are not required to retain a lawyer.
