Application Process


Thank you for your interest in our Pediatric Residency Program at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. All applications must be submitted through ERAS by December 1st. We offer seven positions each year.

Minimum requirements for consideration:

  • Completion of the ERAS application
  • 2-3 letters of recommendation
  • Dean's letter
  • Medical School transcripts
  • USMLE/COMLEX Step 1 & 2 scores
  • Current ECFMG (if applicable, not required at time of interview)
  • We prefer a recent graduation date. If an applicant did not graduate this academic year, they must demonstrate significant clinical experience since graduation.

The Pediatric Residency program does accept foreign medical graduates. However, the department does not currently sponsor H-1b VISAs. Inquiries may be forwarded to the Residency Program Coordinator:
