Interview Process

We begin our fellowship interviews in mid-September and continue through late November. 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.

Applicants are encouraged to attend the interview dinner held at local New Haven restaurants 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.
