Thank you for your interest in the Montefiore /Albert Einstein College of Medicine Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). All applications must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service, ERAS. Residents will be selected based on their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills and personal qualities.
We interview for four First Year Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (CAP) positions.
The following lists the materials used for evaluation of all resident candidates:
- Completed application via ERAS
- Updated Curriculum Vitae
- MSPE, formerly known as the Dean's letter from medical school (with translation if not in English)
- Copy of transcript from medical school (with translation if not in English)
- Copy of medical school diploma
- Copy of license(s)
- Notarized copy of E.C.F.M.G. Certificate (if applicable) (minimum passing score required)
- Notarized copy of Fifth Pathway Certificate (if applicable)
- Passing grades on steps I, II and III USMLE exams prior to interview
- Three (3) letters of professional reference including letter from previous Training Director
- Passage of 3 CSV’s prior to ranking is highly encouraged
- Personal statement
- Interview with Program Directors
Trainees are eligible for acceptance into the program after completing a PGY 3, PGY 4, post-graduate chief resident year in Adult Psychiatry or a one-year fellowship in Psychosomatic Medicine, Addiction or Geriatric Psychiatry. As per ACGME, residency education in child and adolescent psychiatry obtained as part of the curriculum for general psychiatry may not count toward residency education in CAP.
However, certain clinical experiences with children, adolescents, and families taken during CAP training may be counted toward a fourth year in general psychiatry, as well as toward the child and adolescent psychiatry program requirements. For these experiences to be given credit for both child and adolescent psychiatry and general psychiatry, the experiences must:
- Be limited to child and adolescent psychiatry patients;
- Be limited to the following experiences: one month FTE of child neurology; one month FTE of pediatric consultation/liaison; one month FTE of addiction psychiatry; forensic psychiatry experience; community psychiatry experience, and, no more than 20% of outpatient experience as described in Section IV.A.5.a.5.c.iv of the Program Requirements for Psychiatry as formulated by the ACGME.
