ACGME Clinical Fellowship: Instructions to Applicants
Our Program provides training to psychiatrists interested in either academic or clinical careers, or both. Visit our website http://www.cornellpsychiatry.org/education/geriatric.htmlhttp://psychiatry.weill.cornell.edu/weill-cornell-institute-geriatric-psychiatry, where you can find information about the clinical, educational and research programs of the Cornell Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry, including a description of our Program.
This program does not participate in the match and has a rolling admission policy. It usually fills its positions many months before the start date. In order to have the greatest chance of acceptance, candidates should submit the application as early as possible, beginning 18 months prior to the beginning of the Academic Year for which they are applying.
Applicants are expected to have a New York State license prior to beginning the fellowship on July 1st. Please note that we are unable to accept applicants who hold H1-B visas.
Download and complete the Fellowship Application. The application requires the following documents:
1. A one-two page essay discussing your interests in Geriatric Psychiatry and your post-graduation career plans.
2. A Curriculum Vitae including academic honors, awards, publications, presentations, research interests and projects.
3. Three letters of recommendation, including from physicians familiar with your clinical work. One of these letters should be from your Director of Training, certifying completion of Psychiatry Residency training, or indicating your current standing in residency training with an anticipated graduation date. The letters of recommendation may accompany your application but should be in a sealed envelope with the recommender's signature written across the envelope flap. Letters may also be mailed directly from the recommender to us.
Please submit your application packet via e-mail or regular mail to:
