Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is an essential “first stop” for medical students and residents researching the landscape ahead and the resources available online to help them chart and enrich their individual path toward becoming a child neurologist.
The Mission of the ACGME is to improve health care and population health by assessing and advancing the quality of resident physicians’ education through accreditation.
Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®)
The Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®) is the centralized online application service through which medical students direct their application, along with supporting documents, to residency programs. The site also includes a rich deposit of news, updates, data and supplemental information.
National Match Program
The National Resident Match Program is the conduit through which medical students “match” to training programs in child neurology, primarily through use of the certified rank order lists (ROL) of the applicants and program directors, or by availing themselves of unfilled positions during the Match Week Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program®. The Main Residency Match is managed through the NRMP’s Registration, Ranking, and Results® (R3®) system.
Researching training options for the March Resident Match? Information regarding the 74 child neurology and eight neurodevelopmental disablities training programs is updated weekly throughout the year, with contact emails and website URLs provided by the programs. Prospective residents will also want to check out videotaped conversations and lectures curated in the Calling/CNS Conversations section of this website to get a more personal sense of each program’s personality and diversity.
