International graduates must meet the requirements established by the Graduate Medical Education Office at Baylor College of Medicine, as set by the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners and the Immigration Services. They will also need to contact the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), for information regarding the paperwork process for students and graduates of foreign medical schools. Baylor College of Medicine requires international medical graduates to meet the terms for an Institutional Permit, as outlined by the Texas Medical Board, and have the documents necessary for a J-1 Visa.
Any additional questions regarding international applicants can also be addressed though the International Services Office at Baylor College of Medicine.
The Pediatric Surgery Education Committee will review fellowship applications when completed through ERAS. Applicants who are considered competitive for appointment will be invited for an interview, which is an important factor in the final selection. This will provide candidates an opportunity to visit the Texas Medical Center and Baylor College of Medicine either in person or virtually and learn more about the program. Applicants will meet with Dr. Mark Mazziotti, pediatric surgery faculty, and current fellows. They will also be able to tour (in person or virtual) Texas Children’s Hospital. Before adjourning, you will be provided with the opportunity to interact with Faculty and Fellows to address any additional questions.
Formal Interview Sessions
The Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Division of Pediatric Surgery, will conduct three interview sessions each year. The interview dates for the 2023 NRMP Specialty Match application cycle will be released in mid to late Dec. 2022.
