Hello everyone,

Wanted to start this to help with sharing of information. Will be helpful leading up to application and for notification of when programs start sending out interviews. I am a 2nd year peds resident that will be applying on this cycle. Feel free to say hello or start with questions or suggestions if anyone has any. Good luck!

Hey!

This is a great idea! How much insight do you have on applying to Peds GI fellowships? I have like zero guidance because no one from my program has applied to GI in like 10 years and we have 1 peds GI faculty and he is very out of touch with the process to say the least because he has been in practice for 20+ years. I plan on applying this upcoming cycle as well, so it would be great to get some feedback from other residents!

I am figuring on applying to about 15 programs or so. I think that should be enough.. but how many interviews should I realistically do?

Thanks!

I have a little insight though none of our faculty have actually been through the match either. I will apply around the area because honestly I am not sure where I'm competitive. It's annoying most of the websites are a couple of years out of date. Feel free to ask questions if you can think of any.

Do you know when interviews typically start? I know the new 2018 timeline was recently posted and it says on July 15th programs will be able to see our application. However, when do they start offering interviews? Will they start as soon as end of July or will it be more August - October?

10 days until we can apply! (Not like I am counting or anything) Wanted to get this bumped up so other people will see it and hopefully soon we can start posting interview offers. Anyone going to the NASPGHAN conference this year by any chance?

Good luck every one! I am guessing we probably won't start hearing back until Monday, but who knows!

Well the applications all got released to programs on the 15th. I assumed no one would look at them over the weekend, meaning that the earliest we would hear anything would be today. As is, I only heard from one program and it was to just say they received my application and it was under review. I honestly have NO IDEA when they will reply with interview offers because I have had very little guidance for this whole process.

I don't want to reveal too much information as it may indicate where I am training. I am currently a fellow at a large institute and can tell you we start interviewing the second week of August. So, expect to hear back quickly

This is good to know. Thank you! I figured we would start hearing back late July/early August.

Does it really hurt your chances a lot if you have to turn in your application a week later (7/22)? It takes forever to get my letters uploaded and processed.

If one doesnt get an interview from a program, do they notify you via ERAS?
I think programs should give you a response either way whether they invite you to an interview or not. To another question, I am not sure if applying 1-2 weeks late makes any difference. You can always apply before your letters are uploaded.

I would definitely apply and the programs can see your letters are being processed, but they can at least start reviewing your application. Especially if they are a program who sends out interviews early.

Oh so programs can see that you have letters that are being processed? I thought they could only see the letters that are completely processed already.

They cannot see in process ones

I guess not, but they can at least see the rest of your application and start reviewing that, or at least know you are in the process of applying. Or maybe I am completely wrong, but either way if I was in your shoes I would apply as soon as possible even if all my stuff was not processed.

From what I've heard/read invites could happen throughout August.

20, and 5 of them are in the above list..
Well, I would still not give up hope yet! It has only been barely 2 weeks since applications went out and I know the majority of programs have not responded yet. Besides, I am sure there will be a second wave once people start interviewing or turning down/cancelling interviews. Are you planning on going to the NASPGHAN annual conference? I know that is before match and a good way to network and get to know people and maybe even secure an interview!

How many interviews should we aim to do? Any ideas? I was thinking 5-6. I just do not have the money or time to do much more than that, unless the consensus is it should be more.

How many interviews do you think most people have at this point?

I think its all dependent on what programs you applied to and who has responded. I think we may hear from the majority of places these two weeks. That is what I am hearing through the grapevine.

5-6 seems like the right amount to me. Maybe 7... Add Indianapolis to the list of offers too.

Do most of these places send invites in mid-late August or what?
Also, do most places interview in November or no? The places where I've gotten interviews from all have dates from only August to October.

Well, even worse than waiting for invitations is seeing that the program already sent some out.

Have most programs sent out invites already?

Also, is it true that on average, places interview about 10 candidates per spot?

not at all (in terms of number of invites)... not sure where you got that info. Speaking to a program director from a program with 1 spot, they get approximately 50 applicants and interview 20-25. I am sure everywhere is different though. If you look at last years invites, programs sent out invites through the end of august.

I think it really depends on the strength of the program. Cincinnati, for example interviews around 12 for 4 spots. Most others seem to be around the 8-10 interviewees for each position range though.
