The ERAS postoffice opens on September 15. As soon as it opens, we begin reviewing applications, selecting applicants and offering interviews October through December, and sometimes into early January. Interviews are by invitation only and are a prerequisite for matching to our program. If we are able to offer you an interview, you will be contacted through email. We will do our best to accommodate your schedule in arranging an interview. The earlier we receive your ERAS application the more likely we will be able to offer you an interview slot of your choice.
The Interview Day
On interview day, applicants receive presentations on the program, have an opportunity to talk with faculty members and residents, and tour various training sites. The mornings consist of overviews on the program from the Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior; Chief Residents; the Training Directors; and the Directors of Research and Psychotherapy. After lunch with our residents, your afternoon consists of a series of interviews with both faculty and residents.
Two interview days have a special focus on the NIMH-funded Research Track and our various research opportunities during residency. This day also includes an overview of the program.
The residency program hosts an applicant dinner the evening prior to all interview days where you will be able to meet and mingle with residents in a friendly and casual setting.
For the convenience of our applicants, we use Thalamus, a web-based self-scheduling software program.
