Interview Process

At Stony Brook Children's we take pride in the relationship between our house staff and our faculty. This relationship begins on the interview day when applicants meet faculty and residents while learning about our program.

Pediatric Residency Applications are accepted through ERAS only. The program director reviews all applications.

Candidates should not call to inquire about their application status or to request that their application be reviewed. If you are selected to interview, you will receive an e-mail invitation from the residency coordinator with specific dates and instructions on how to schedule your interview.

The interview season begins in early November and ends mid-January. Interview dates book very quickly, so responding to your invitation to interview as soon as possible will help ensure you get a date that will work with your schedule.
