How to Apply

We’re committed to admitting applicants of the highest quality from diverse backgrounds to meet the public health need for well-trained child and adolescent psychiatrists, who provide excellent clinical care, contribute to education and participate in scholarly activities.

We accept applications for any open positions in our Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship training program through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) beginning in July each year.

  • two letters of recommendation from faculty in your current residency program
  • a letter of recommendation from the training director of your general psychiatry residency and the Training Verification Form (below) — please upload to ERAS as one document
  • personal statement addressing your interest in child and adolescent psychiatry and your longer-term career goals
  • curriculum vitae
  • USMLE transcripts and or comlex scores (program strongly encourages applicants to complete Step III prior to beginning CAP residency)
  • medical school diploma or transcript
