* Pediatrics match
  priya1067 - 11/07/19 20:52
  I came to know that if we are already pediatrician back home , we can directly apply for pediatrics subspecialties fellowship first and get into the system and subsequently apply for pediatrics residency . Even we will do residency after fellowship , both will be counted. My friend knows someone who did this by getting into John H Stroger hospital Neonatology fellowship and subsequently into residency in newyork and now practicing as neonatologist. Anyone has any insight about this.

  Not only if you have done residency back home. Also if you are just a medical graduate, you may apply to some of the fellowships, as long as they are "Non-ACGME accredited fellowships". If it is ACGME fellowships, you need a prior US residency training.

  I am aware about the neurology fellowships.....Go to the AAN website, look up for all fellowships of your interest, and find out the details about the fellowship program if its ACGME accredited or not. Write down an email to every program director describing your interest and then wait for their replies.
Even though many of the programs may reject you, few of them will be welling to interview you.

If this is possible for neurology fellowships, then indeed its possible for pediatrics too.......
