Toxicology Fellowship Application and Interviews


We suggest applicants contact us with a letter of intent and curriculum vitae in the summer (June - July) prior to the intended start year (fellowships begin in July). Interview offers are extended on a rolling basis beginning in July, so we highly recommend applications be complete by mid-August.

Complete applications will include the following components:


Interviews usually occur over two days on Thursdays and Fridays beginning in late August and through early October. The Thursday interview day will begin at 8:45 AM, include lunch with the fellows, and conclude with an applicant dinner. Friday generally ends by noon. You will have an opportunity to attend morning rounds, tour the hospital (including the toxicology laboratory), interview with most faculty, and sit in on the weekly toxicology conference and journal club. Occasionally, single interview days will be offered if all two-day interview slots have been filled.

Due to COVID-19, many institutions have travel restrictions in place. Furthermore, the ACGME has issued recommendations that fellowship applicant interviews be conducted online and that visits be virtual (see press release here). Therefore, all interviews for this application season (July 2021 start date) will be conducted online. Details will be forthcoming.

Rank Lists

Medical Toxicology fellowship programs participate in the National Resident Match Program (NRMP), with the Medical Toxicology match generally opening in late August and Match Day being in mid-November. However, the fellowships do NOT participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) so application materials must be sent individually. Our program ID is 1180321001.
