Application Process

(updated 7/6/21)

We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We plan to match seven PGY-1 positions for the 2022-2023 academic year. For consideration for an invitation to interview with our program, your application must include at least three letters of recommendation, your medical school’s Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE), your personal statement, and your USMLE Step 1 score.  Applicants who have submitted these required materials will be sent a link to a survey through ERAS which will request an answer to the following question:

“Why is the UCLA-Olive View Psychiatry Residency Training Program specifically appealing to you?”

Once our program receives your completed survey, you will be considered for an invitation to interview. Interviews will be offered on a rolling basis, and surveys submitted after November 15, 2021, will not be considered.

As per the Consensus Statement from the American Association of Directors of Psychiatric Residency Training (AADPRT) and the Association of Directors of Medical Student Education in Psychiatry (ADMSEP), our residency program will be conducting our interview days virtually during this recruitment season. The interview day will include an overview of the program, formal interviews with both faculty and senior residents, and opportunities to informally interact with current residents during the day as well as during a virtual lunch hour.

Interview days with selected applicants will be held on Wednesdays and Thursdays from mid-October through January. Each interview day will begin in the morning and conclude by 2:30 pm (PST).

Please note that only applicants who have graduated from medical school within the past 3 years will be considered for an interview and that we are unable to sponsor work visas in our training program.

We do not currently anticipate any open PGY-2 positions for the 2022-2023 year. Any inquiries regarding the availability of PGY-2 positions should be made directly to our program coordinator.
