The SPD has established a formal pediatric dermatology match program to coordinate the processing, distribution, and review of applicants for post-graduate pediatric dermatology training programs. Please note, the specialty of Pediatric Dermatology has been ACGME approved and accreditation of programs will begin in Spring/Summer 2021. The SPD matching program is open to U.S. and Canadian based residents/fellows who are dermatology board certified or board-eligible, and will be open January 6 – November 15, 2021 for fellowship positions that will begin in July or August 2022.
- The Pediatric Dermatology Fellowship Match can be found at www.sfmatch.org. The website includes match rules, explanation of the process, answers to FAQs, and allows fellowship candidates to “register” for the match.
- For residents, there is a $50 fee for individual candidates who wish to participate in the official match process. This can be paid online at www.sfmatch.org or via check. Once this fee is paid, candidates will have access to the directory of participating programs, the match ranking forms, and additional directions.
- The rank list submission deadline for fellowship positions to begin in July or August 2022 will be Monday, November 8, 2021. Official match results will be provided on Monday, November 15, 2021.
- Please note that both the resident match applicant and fellowship director has to verify that they must not accept/offer a position outside the match for the program to work successfully.
- International (non-Canadian) fellow candidates are asked to contact fellowship program directors individually to inquire about available positions.
