How to Apply

We are pleased that you are interested in our combined family medicine/psychiatry residency program. We are dedicated to attracting a diverse and dedicated group of individuals and look forward to receiving your application. All applications are screened by our combined faculty and qualified candidates are offered a personal interview. The personal interview allows candidates to meet combined residents and categorical residents from both departments, tour training sites integral to the combined curriculum and ask unanswered questions about combined training. The interview also affords candidates an opportunity to more fully elaborate on their interest in combined training.  For full consideration applications must be received by October 1.

Please refer to the California GME Licensure Requirements if you have any questions about your application eligibility.
