Saint Louis University's adult psychiatry residency program consists of eight residents per year. All applicants need to apply using the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).

We accept applications through ERAS only.  Emailed or faxed applications will not be reviewed.

Application Deadlines

The deadline for submission of your ERAS application to be considered for the 2023 Match is November 1, 2022.  Early applications are encouraged. 

Applicant Requirements

Your application is considered complete when we have received your ERAS application, personal statement, photo, three letters of recommendation, medical school transcripts, MSPE (Dean's Letter), ECFMG certificate (if applicable) and documentation of national USMLE or COMLEX scores.

We accept graduates from United States and Canada accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), osteopathic medicine in the United States accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), and from outside the United States who will be eligible for a valid certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) or have a full unrestricted license to practice medicine in a U.S. licensing jurisdiction, or who have completed a Fifth Pathway program provided by an LCME-accredited medical school.  ECFMG certification will be required for onboarding after the Match.

Anti-Discrimination Statement

We believe that outstanding psychiatrists develop from individuals with diverse backgrounds, educational experiences, and trajectories.  Thus, we strive to recruit a diverse group of prospective residents. The program will not discriminate with regard to gender, race, age, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or veteran status. The applicant selection process will follow the ACGME guidelines, as well as our program guidelines.
