Pediatrics - Tulane-Ochsner Pediatric Residency Program - How to Apply

Applications for the residency program are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Services (ERAS).

Application Process

The following materials are required for a completed application to Tulane / Ochsner Pediatrics Residency Program:

Application through ERAS
Dean’s letter
Three letters of recommendation from faculty
Personal statement
Official medical school transcript
USMLE Step 1 or COMLEX Level 1 (Step 2 or Level 2 required before ranking)

Please do not hesitate to submit your ERAS application on the initial release date – we will send out invitations before some components (e.g. the dean’s letter) are in the file.

Couples Matching

If you are participating in the Couples Match, please provide the name of your match mate and the residency program to which he/she is applying in the space indicated on your ERAS application.

International Medical Graduates

Applications are prioritized with a minimum USMLE score of 225 - however, we do review the entire application and do not base our decision solely upon the USMLE scores.

Foreign applications MUST be ECFMG certified and have passed the CSA before beginning residency if matched in our program.

We sponsor J1 VISA only.

We prefer one year of US clinical experience.

Year of graduation should be within 4 years of applying.

Observerships and externships are not available
