Application Process


Twelve categorical pediatric positions are available each year in the Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine Residency, and two pediatrics-child neurology positions are available at the PL-1 and PL-2 levels. In addition each year, two third-year residents are selected to serve as fourth-year chief residents.

Mayo Clinic also has fellowship programs in the pediatric subspecialties.
