application and interview information
Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine Integrated Pediatric Program at Dayton Children’s Hospital/Wright Patterson Air Force Base has 50 residents (including our chief residents). Each class is comprised of a total of 16 residents. Approximately eight categorical pediatric appointments are made to the PL-1 class through the National Resident Matching Program. The other eight categorical positions are matched via the military system.
The WSUBSOM Integrated Pediatric/Dayton Children's residency program participates in ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). As part of your application, we ask for your USMLE score report, medical school transcript, dean’s letter, personal statement, and three letters of recommendation.
An ideal candidate would have:
- Finished medical school within the past four years (i.e. not out of clinical practice for an extended period)
- USMLE score above 230 and COMLEX above 430
- Above average grades
- Permanent U.S. residence, U.S. citizenship or green card holder
- A definite commitment to pediatrics
International medical graduates and osteopathic graduates are welcome to apply through ERAS. The same standards as above apply. We abide by Section 201 of the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine Resident & Fellow Manual (Residents Selection). In addition, International medical graduates need ECFMG certification. Osteopathic graduates are encouraged to take the USMLE test.
We are conducting virtual interviews during the 2021-22 application season. The Thalamus system will be utilized for scheduling and virtual interviews platform this year. Letters of invite will be sent out by mid-September and applications will be accepted until December 3, 2021.
