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 Sept 15th to Dec 1st  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, better 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 November 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.


International Graduates:
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.
