Eligibility and Application Procedure
Thank you for your interest in training at the University of Texas at Austin Dell Psychiatry resident program. All applications for residency are to be completed through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) — please be sure to reference the ERAS page for the most up-to-date application information on the current training cycle.
Applicants for PGY-1 positions are selected through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). Positions are not offered outside of the match period. Our Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education program identification number is 4004-813-299, and our NRMP Program Code is 1793400C0.
General application requirements include:
- Application (submitted through ERAS)
- Personal Statement
- Letter of recommendation from the dean/MSPE
- Letters of recommendation (minimum of three)
- United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 scores or Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX) Level 1
- ECFMG certification (if applicable)
- Curriculum Vitae
There is no specific cut off for USMLE or COMLEX scores. Step 2 CS and CK scores do not have to be uploaded in ERAS at the beginning of the application cycle, however we request that they be submitted as soon as possible during the application cycle and must be uploaded before rank lists are submitted.
Applicants selected to interview will be emailed. Interviews are offered on Mondays and Fridays, typically from October through December. There is a complimentary dinner with current residents provided the evening before interviews, and the interview day spans from about 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., including interviews, tours of rotation sites, and lunch with current residents.
