Interview Process

We begin our fellowship interviews in mid-September and continue through late November with a total of six available interview dates. Your interviews at Yale will include two different fellowship training tracks: our State of Connecticut Albert J. Solnit Children’s Center, South Campus or “Solnit South Track”; and our Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital or “New Haven Track”.  The two tracks have different Match numbers. For this reason, our interviews occur over the course of two days with a 3pm conclusion on Tuesday. We will contact you via ERAS to schedule an interview after reviewing your application. 

Interviews are scheduled by Tanya Colon:

Applicants are encouraged to attend the interview dinner held at a local New Haven restaurant on Monday night, after your first interview day.  This will give you an opportunity to mingle with current Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellows and get a better feel for the program. Thank you for your interest in the Yale Child Study Center Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program.  We wish you luck in your fellowship search.
