Learn more about our GME programs

Our community-based Graduate Medical Education is one of the nation's few training programs in which all residencies are integrated among a number of hospitals and community clinic settings, instead of one fixed setting such as a university hospital. Our residents work at 14 teaching affiliate hospitals, staffing hospitals 24 hours a day, implementing new treatment methods and conducting research. They see patients from diverse backgrounds and work with community faculty.

EVMS' Psychiatry Residency only accepts applications submitted through the AAMC's Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The program participates in the National Residency Matching Program.
