Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship

How to Apply

To be eligible for the UC Davis Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship, candidates must have completed training in an ACGME-accredited pediatrics residency program and hold a valid California medical license.

Our program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) fall match for Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine. All applications are through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), the online application service of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).

IMG - Applying for a Postgraduate Position

Graduates of International Medical Schools must meet all California Medical Board licensing requirements for either a Post Graduate Training License (PTL) or a California Physician’s and Surgeon’s License, and any J-1 visa sponsorship requirements (if applicable).

Visas: A clinical J-1 visa is required for admission to UC Davis Health residency and fellowship training programs. The visa can only be sponsored by ECFMG, which requires passage of USMLE Steps 1 and 2. Applicants on a J-1 with a waiver from the Department of State (DOS) can only be accepted into our programs on an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) or J-1 visa Physician Program.
