Applying to the Psychiatry Residency Program Frequently Asked Questions
The program is filled for the current training year (2009-10) for all PGY levels. The number of PGY-I (intern) positions varies from year to year (9-12 slots). For June 2010, we are recruiting for 12 PGY-I positions.
We welcome applications from highly qualified international medical graduates (IMGs).
All applicants must be eligible for medical licensure in the state of Colorado. The Colorado Board of Medical Examiners reviews international medical schools on a case by case basis. Any questions regarding school acceptance should be directed to Board staff, http://www.dora.state.co.us/medical/.
International medical graduates must have an ECFMG certificate and provide documentation prior to the rank order deadline.
There is no maximum number of years since medical school graduation.
PGY-1 applicants must pass USMLE Step 1 and provide documentation by the rank order deadline.
No minimum score is required and there is no maximum number of attempts. However, higher scores are advantageous in the ranking process.
UC Denver policy requires all residents to successfully complete the USMLE Step 2 (CS and CK) or COMLEX Part 2 (CE and PE) examination prior to the mid-point of their PGY-1 training year. Documentation of successful passing of Step 2 is advantageous in the ranking process.
All PGY-I applicants must register through the NRMP and apply through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). No PGY I offers are made outside of the NRMP.
PGY II applicants may apply through ERAS or our in-house application form and are accepted outside of the NRMP. Credit for prior training in US ACGME-accredited programs will be determined case by case.
