Application Process & Contact Information

Eligibility

All applicants must be either a U.S. citizen or be a permanent green card holder. Currently, we do not provide visa sponsorship. International medical graduates must hold a valid and current Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certificate.

Most applicants apply for the child & adolescent fellowship after completing the first three years of a psychiatric residency. They must also be eligible to obtain an Oregon Limited License. Exceptional candidates may be considered upon completion of at least two years of psychiatric residency, dependent upon availability of an adult psychiatry position the year following completion of both years of child and adolescent psychiatry training, which is needed to fulfill the ABPN requirement for 12 months of adult continuity outpatient clinic. 

Applicants currently in a residency program must be in good standing to be considered.  Applicants will need to have verification of their training by their program director by completing this form.

Application 

The Child and Adolescent Fellowship accepts applications through ERAS and participates in the Match (NRMP). Applications may be submitted any time before Nov. 15 of the year prior to the desired contract year. The following application materials are required and must be submitted through ERAS:

  • ERAS Application or ECFMG-ERAS (for International Medical Graduates)
  • Medical school transcript
  • Curriculum vitae (the ERAS generated CV is acceptable)
  • Personal statement
  • Current photo
  • Three letters of reference from faculty members (one of which should be from your Program Director)
  • Documentation of passing scores on USMLE Steps 1-3 or COMLEX Levels 1-3

Interviews 

Interviews will be granted to applicants who successfully complete our initial screening process. Applicants are selected solely on the basis of academic performance and personal qualifications, regardless of sex, ethnicity, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identification, veteran status or disability that does not directly impede the training process. Samaritan Health Services has an Equity and Inclusion policy, and our GME Office Diversity Policy for Recruitment of Resident, Fellows, Faculty, and Staff expressly forbids discrimination of any form and encourages recruitment and retention of minorities underrepresented in medicine and medical leadership.
