How do I apply for your program?
For PGY 1 positions, applications are accepted beginning in July for the following year's class. The deadline for completed Psychiatry applications is December 20. Our programs are accepting only electronic applications through ERAS (the Electronic Residency Application Service). The required documents for an application are the same as ERAS (three letters of recommendation, the Dean's letter, formal transcripts, USMLE/COMLEX transcripts and a personal statement). We would like at least one of the letters to be from a physician in Psychiatry. If you are an international applicant, we accept all applications through the national MATCH and ECFMG is required. Learn more about applying.
Do you have USMLE minimum score requirements for Step 1 and Step 2?
Applicants must have passed USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination) Step 1 and have taken both components of Step 2 or the COMLEX (Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination) Level 1 and have taken both components of Level 2. Having Step 3 is helpful as well, but not a requirement.
What is the size of the program?
The Psychiatry program will have 32 residents (8 PGY 1, 8 PGY 2, 8 PGY 3 and 8 PGY 4).
What is the hospital size and patient demographics?
We are an 86-bed acute care hospital with a variety of ages, races, ethnicities and socioeconomic economic status. Our patient demographics are broad and have all ages and ranges from children to geriatrics. The spectrum of patients offers an excellent learning environment.
