The three-year pediatric cardiology fellowship program at Vanderbilt challenges trainees through intensive clinical experience and opportunities for investigative work in a number of clinical and basic research fields. The training program at Vanderbilt is approved by the American Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
We participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and only accept applications in this manner. Our program number is ACGME ID: 3254711045. The ERAS program applications are available on November 15 and review will begin December 1. Our deadline for submission of applications is December 31 for positions beginning July 1, 18 months later.
We offer positions through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) fellowship match, and our NMPR # is 1702325F0. Match lists must be submitted through the NRMP by its deadline, which is in mid-May for positions starting July 1 of the following year. The results of the match are released both to programs and to applicants approximately six weeks after the lists are submitted.
There are many more applicants to our program than we can interview. Interviews are conducted between January and April by invitation, after review of the application materials. As a result, we encourage you to apply early.
