The Mount Sinai Fellowship Training Program in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry admits two residents annually. Trainees must have completed a minimum of 3 postgraduate years, including at least two years of General Psychiatry. In rare cases individuals who have completed their PGY-1 year may be considered for admission (note: the ACGME permits training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry prior to General Psychiatry; however, in order to be eligible for the Board examination in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, trainees must have first passed the Boards in General Psychiatry). In order to be considered for admission a trainee must either be licensed in New York State or be eligible for a temporary (trainee) license. For international medical graduates, completion of the ECFMG is also a requirement. For non-U.S. citizens, proof of suitable immigration status is required.
In order to apply prospective candidates must submit a completed application form in duplicate, three letters of recommendation (one of which must be from the current Training Director in General Psychiatry), and copies of their medical school transcript and Dean's letter. It is recommended that applications be completed no later than October 1, however, applications will be processed until the deadline of the National Residency Matching Program. Our program participates in the National Residency Matching Program that establishes deadlines for rank order match lists from participating applicants and programs on a yearly basis. Rank order lists are generally due in late December, and results are announced in January.
Offers of admission are made in conjunction with the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Specialty Match, which is announced in January. Applicants who wish to be considered outside the match may make such a request, with the understanding that we follow the rules of the NRMP, which imposes specific limitations on how this can be done. This limits such applications to the period prior to July 1 of the year before training is to begin.
The Triple Board Program participates in the general NRMP sponsored match. Deadlines for this match occur somewhat later than those for the specialty match. Submission of rank order lists due in early February, and the announcement of the NRMP results occurs in March.
