2020-2021 Application Season Update:
With uncertainty about how the pandemic will evolve, and in order to ensure the greatest safety and access for applicants, we are planning for virtual interview days. We are currently hard at work in re-imagining and planning these days to ensure we can showcase our residents and residency to you and vice versa!
We recognize how challenging it will be this year to have the experiences and form deep relationships with faculty. We plan on continuing our long tradition of deep, holistic reviews of residency applications, emphasizing understanding who you are as a future pediatrician and person. USMLE Step 2 scores are not required for United States medical school graduates, and not including them in your application will not adversely affect review. We also understand that it may not be possible to obtain a letter of recommendation from a pediatric rotation, to complete a pediatric subinternship, or to undertake any visiting rotations.
We look forward to reviewing your application.
The goal of the Boston Combined Residency Program in Pediatrics is to train subspecialty and general pediatricians in both a distinctive and integrated manner. We believe this program serves as a national model for pediatric training and comprehensive care for children. It has brought together two great hospitals and universities not for economic gain, but rather to help craft the future of pediatric care and training. We are pleased to offer this program for applicants interested in becoming leaders in pediatrics, and we look forward to working closely with our future house officers to help shape the future of clinical care, research, and education.
