Psychiatry Residency Program Overview


Psychiatry Residency Program Overview

The UCR School of Medicine's four-year graduate medical education program in psychiatry offers diverse and eclectic training opportunities in the full breadth of psychiatry, including psychotherapy and pharmacology.

Residents are encouraged to spend time in scholarly pursuits, including clinical and research opportunities, rather than spending time encumbered by service commitments. In addition, the program features no call or weekends.

Our program features dedicated faculty mentors, opportunities to earn financial assistance through work opportunities, and financial support to present at national and international conferences.

Application Information

The program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and accepts applications only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We require a copy of your MSPE (Dean's letter), three letters of recommendation (preferably at least one from an attending in psychiatry), medical school transcripts and copies of USMLE scores (or COMLEX.)
