How to Apply


Each year, we take 25 categorical pediatrics residents, 14 Med-Peds residents, 2 EM-Peds, 3 Triple Board/Psychiatry residents, and 1 Child Neurology. We seek the best and brightest students to join our diverse and talented group.

Application Process

We accept applications through ERAS. Applicants must submit 3 letters of recommendation (a Chairman's letter is not required). We begin reviewing ERAS applications in late September and notify applicants via Interview Broker when the majority of your file is complete. Interviews occur each week from October through January. We pride ourselves on 'Hoosier Hospitality' and whenever possible, we will work with you to accommodate travel schedules, couples match, or other special requests.


Applicants will be contacted by email from October to early November regarding the scheduling of an interview. During the interview visit, applicants meet with faculty and current residents and tour the campus. The night before the interview, applicants join our pediatric residents for dinner and enjoy a stay in beautiful downtown Indianapolis, just minutes from campus. Interview day concludes by 1:30pm.
