The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship program looks for mature, motivated applicants who have satisfactorily completed a general psychiatry residency accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education prior to entering the program. The program strives for a well-rounded class of two fellows with individual strengths in different areas.
Applicants must be fourth-year general psychiatry residents with U.S. citizen or permanent resident status and have passed the COMLEX or USMLE Steps I and II. Applicants must be eligible for a Texas license upon the completion of residency, and their school must be listed on the Texas Medical Board’s list of medical schools with substantial equivalence.
Fourth-year general psychiatry residents apply for fellowships in psychosomatic medicine through the National Resident Matching Program Specialties Matching Service. Electronic Residency Application Service applications will not be used; applicants should send the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine common application for consultation-liaison fellowship position (PDF version) directly to the program coordinator (email address below). The program does not offer any pre-match positions.
The application deadline is Nov. 1.
- Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (the program does not currently sponsor visas);
- Pass COMLEX or USMLE Steps I and II;
- 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. (For information regarding becoming a physician in training in the State of Texas, please visit the Texas Medical Board website.)

- The APM Common Fellowship Application;
- A curriculum vitae or resume;

IMGs/FMGs: Please note the list of “Schools Whose Graduates Have Demonstrated Substantial Equivalence of Their Education” (located under the “Before You Apply” sidebar on the “Full Texas Medical License” 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.
