Application Details

Application for the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship entails review of application materials, letters of recommendation and program interviews. Addiction Psychiatry began using ERAS in July 2021, but applications also are accepted through direct email to the program.

Addiction Psychiatry does not participate in the National Resident Matching Program. The program notifies applicants of their selection directly.


Applicants must:

  • Pass COMLEX or USMLE Steps I, II and III;
  • Be eligible for a Texas license upon the completion of residency;
  • Come from a school listed on the Texas Medical Board’s list of medical schools with substantial equivalence;
  • Be in the process of completing or having completed general psychiatry residency or child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship.

For information regarding becoming a physician in training in the State of Texas, please visit the Texas Medical Board website.

International Medical Graduates & Foreign Medical Graduates

If you are an IMG or FMG, please note the “Substantial Equivalence List” located under the Before You Apply sidebar on the Full Texas Medical License Overview page of the Texas Medical Board website. If your medical school is not listed, you will not be invited for an interview and may find it difficult to obtain a training permit in Texas. The list is subject to change at any time.

Application Procedure

Application is available through ERAS. For more information, check the ERAS website. After the close of the ERAS application window, apply by email: 

  • Send your curriculum vitae and personal statement to
  • Request three letters of recommendation, emailed to us directly by the professor or instructor. One of these should be written by your residency program director.

After application review, the program coordinator will be in contact to schedule an interview between July and October. Selection will continue to occur directly, rather than through a match.
