Apply for Child and Adolescent Fellowship

The Department of Psychiatry has four positions available each year in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship.

How to apply

Our fellowship participates in the National Resident Matching Program through ERAS, the Electronic Residency Application Service. All supporting documents, including letters of recommendation, must be submitted electronically as part of the ERAS submission.

Letters of recommendations

One letter must be from your training director in general psychiatry, detailing your psychiatric education to date. The letter should include the rotations that you have taken and any rotations that may need to be completed in Adult Psychiatry for Board eligibility
Three other letters are required; these can be in regards to Medical School, Internship, or Residency.

Visa Sponsorship

The J-1 alien physician visa sponsored by ECFMG is the preferred visa status for foreign national trainees in all UMN graduate medical education programs; therefore, the Department of Psychiatry sponsors J-1 visas, and H-1B visas (in some situations).
More information on the J-1 and H-1B visas can be found on the UMN-GME webpage: International Medical Graduates & Visas

Application Deadlines

Please refer to the ERAS website and National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) for deadlines.


Applicants considered for a position to the University of Minnesota will be offered an interview with the program director and selected faculty. These Interviews will be conducted between September 10, 2018 and November 15, 2018.
