Applying

We participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), and will not consider any PGY-1 applications outside of the Match. You can schedule your interview on ERAS. When you make your interview appointment, be sure to tell us of any special interests (e.g., child, geriatrics, psychotherapy, teaching, research, etc.), and if there are any particular faculty or house staff you would like to meet. If, after a week, you have not received a confirmation, please give us a call to check on the status of your interview request.

For both PGY5 and Fellowship applicants please send in the following:
•Curriculum Vitae/Resume
•Personal Statement- A narrative biographical sketch of less than 1000 words which includes pertinent personal background information and highlights why you have chosen the field of community psychiatry.
•Three letters of recommendation (one of the letters must be from your Training Director)

For PGY5 Applicants also be sure to complete the ERAS Application for residencies.

We encourage all interested applicants to contact the program directors of the respective programs with inquires.
