Fellowship Application Guide

A Guide to the Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship Application Process

Applicants interested in applying to Pediatric Otolaryngology fellowships should enter the Pediatric Otolaryngology fellowship match at http://sfmatch.org.

Most fellowships require completion of the universal application. Individual programs may require additional materials. Application requirements and contact information for each program are available on the Fellowship Program Listing Page.


All required clinical education for entry into ACGME-accredited fellowship programs must be completed in an ACGME-accredited residency program, an AOA-approved residency program, a program with ACGME International (ACGME-I) Advanced Specialty Accreditation, or a Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC)-accredited or College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC)-accredited residency program located in Canada.

All positions will be offered through the matching mechanism

Deadlines for applications vary, but most are due at the beginning of the year prior to the fellowship’s starting date. For example, applications for positions beginning in July 2022 will be due in early 2021. Be sure to check each program’s due date in the Fellowship Program Listing section of this website.

Interviews begin after applications are reviewed. Program interview dates are posted around the end of October each year. Match deadlines and dates are posted yearly on http://sfmatch.org.
