The ERAS post office opens on October 21. As soon as it opens, we begin reviewing applications, selecting applicants and offering interviews November through 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
Consistent with the request from AAMC, all interviews for the 2020-21 season will be a virtual format. No applicants, including local applicants, will have in-person interviews or tours.
On interview day, applicants receive presentations on the program and have an opportunity to talk with faculty members and residents. The day consists 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. 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 will host a virtual meet-and-greet the evening prior to all interview days where you will be able to meet and mingle with residents.
For the convenience of our applicants, we use Thalamus, a web-based self-scheduling software program.
