How to Apply
Thank you for your interest in the Neuroscience Research Training Program (NRTP) at Yale.
To apply to the NRTP for entry at the PGY I level, apply to the Yale Psychiatry Residency, and indicate your interest in the NRTP on the application or by informing the NRTP training director. The NRTP has a separate match number, but not a separate application process. For entry at the PGY II or higher level, directly contact the NRTP training director.
Applicants at the PGY I and II levels may inform the NRTP Director, Christopher Pittenger, of their interest. Inquires and questions can be directed to:
Program Administrator, NRTP
34 Park Street, 3rd floor
New Haven, CT 06519
NRTP applicants interested in beginning in the PGY I year will interview on two consecutive days, first for the general adult psychiatry residency and then with the NRTP. The two-day format enables the applicant to learn about the extensive clinical and research opportunities at the Yale School of Medicine. All interviews will be held virtually, consistent with recommendations from both national and Yale residency oversight bodies. Interviews will be held in the afternoon on the following dates:
- Wednesday, December 1 (general adult) and Thursday, December 2 (NRTP)
- Wednesday, December 15 (general adult) and Thursday, December 16 (NRTP)
- Wednesday, January 12 (general adult) and Thursday, January 13 (NRTP)
While it is our preference to interview all research track candidates on these dates, accommodations can be made for unresolvable schedule conflicts.
Our application review and interview process is coordinated with both the general adult program and the Solnit Integrated Program in Adult and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. We are committed to conducting a fair and equitable review of all applications. This takes time. Interview invitations will begin to go out in mid-October.
