Payment Method

The Fellowship Council web site uses a two-step process to select fellowship programs you wish to apply to. In the first step, you add the programs you are interested in to a personal list that is saved in our system. The second step requires you to confirm the programs you want your application to be submitted to. After you create your account, you will be required to leave a valid credit card number that we will use to pay for your selections. Receipts will be sent after the deadline to confirm applications has passed. For billing and payment inquiries, please contact the Fellowship Council office at 310.437.0555.

Eligibility

It is the responsibility of the applicant to check with each program to which they are applying and confirm that they are eligible for a position at that institution.  Program requirements vary from program to program, and specific eligibility requirements must be confirmed by the applicant.  Additionally, it is the responsibility of the applicant to check with the State Board of Medical Examiners in each program’s state and confirm that they meet the specified criteria for licensing in that state.  Particular attention should be paid to program and state licensing requirements regarding medical school accreditation status, years of post-graduate residency training in the United States, and visa eligibility requirements and sponsorship. Warning to IMGs in a non-accredited ACGME program: Some institutions will not sponsor a J-1 clinical VISA for non-ACGME accredited Fellowships.
