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. 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.
2021-2022 Application Season Update:
Consistent with national recommendations regarding virtual interviews for reasons related to equity, safety, health, cost and environmental impact, all of the BCRP interview days will be virtual for the upcoming 2021-2022 season. The schedule of interview days is listed here.
We are committed to making these days informational, fun, and reflective of what we believe is so special about the BCRP. We want to showcase our residents and residency to you and vice versa!
We will continue our long tradition of holistic reviews of residency applications that emphasize understanding who you are as a future pediatrician and person. We do not require USMLE Step 2 scores for our review and understand parts of your application may have been modified because of the pandemic. That will not be a problem for us.
We issue interview invitations when our review is complete, but because we review each application in depth and write a detailed summary of each applicant, our reviews take longer than most other programs. We apologize for this but believe that reviewing the complete application and not using filters to exclude applicants is the fairest approach and allows us to identify the best applicants. Also, because we do not review applications in a systematic order some applications do not get reviewed until the end of the reading period and some applicants will receive interview invitations before others. Please note that we expect to complete our review and issue all interview invitations by November 12. You will hear from us by then.
More information about the process of applying is listed here.
We look forward to reviewing your application and getting to know you better.
Sharing the BCRP commitment as an actively anti-racist pediatrics training program
We acknowledge that inequity, bias, and systemic racism are present in our hospitals; we are committed to advancing anti-racist actions, policies, and care in our training program. We also know it is critical for our applicants to see how the BCRP is working to sustainably power and elevate actively anti-racist educational and clinical work. Some examples of this work include enhancing diversity amongst our BCRP leadership team in a specific and timely way; establishing dedicated time to championing anti-racism for Associate Program Directors at both institutions; and conducting a systematic review of our educational content and clinical learning environments to identify ways to intentionally dismantle structural racism.
