The Application Procedure
The St. Luke’s Roosevelt Psychiatric Residency Training Program participates in the National Resident Match Program (#207041) and the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applications are accepted from August 15th to December 15th for each academic year.
Complete applications include:
The ERAS Common Application Form
A Personal Statement
Three letters of recommendation
Medical school transcript
Dean’s Letter from your medical school , also know as the MSPE
An official USMLE transcript
Graduates from medical schools outside the United States or Canada must also provide an ECFMG Certification Status Report. Comlex Scores are an acceptable substitute for USMLE scores.
Our interview and selection process begins in early October and runs through early February. Because of the large number of applications, we are not able to interview all applicants. After receipt of your completed application, your material will be reviewed by the Residency selection Committee. Once a decision is reached, you will receive an invitation for an interview, or an acknowledgement that your application was reviewed but declined.
Approximately 10% of applicants invited for an interview are graduates of international medical schools. If it has been over four years since you completed medical school, you will not be considered. As an international graduate, we expect you to have successfully taken the USMLE and passed each part at the first attempt. While there is no specific cut-off score, your candidacy is improved by your scores. St Luke's Roosevelt Hospital sponsors H and J visas, if all the the necessary criteria are met.
