Criteria for Candidacy
Because fellowship funding is primarily derived from federal training grants, we usually are only able to consider applications from U.S. citizens or permanent residents holding green cards. However, highly qualified foreign medical graduates who have an ECFMG certificate and do not need financial support may also apply.
Both the University of Iowa and our Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Training Program are committed to fostering gender, ethnic, and racial diversity. The University of Iowa was the first public institution in the country to admit women on an equal basis with men, admitting African-American students from its inception in the mid-19th Century. This legacy and the enormous importance of diversity in the global community of the 21st Century underscore our institution's commitment to improving access to opportunity for all members of society, especially women and underrepresented minorities.
