GMH Psychiatry Residency Program, Resident Physicians (2018)
APPLYING FOR RESIDENCY
We will participate exclusively through the ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service) for all six of our positions. We will begin accepting applications September 1st of each year. Once all application material is received the Residency Training Committee will review applications and make a decision about extending an interview for the residency program.
All applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents. Decision to consider visa needs will be on a case to case basis and at the program's discretion.
We invite both MD and DO candidates to apply to our program. We require that all the board exams be successfully completed within a period of seven years and no more than 2 failed attempts combined on any two USMLE/COMLEX exams.
Please note that we cannot offer you an interview if you have three or more failed attempts on any one of the three USMLE exams or a total of six or more failed attempts on all exams combined. As per Oklahoma Law, you cannot be licensed to practice medicine in the state of Oklahoma if you have above mentioned number of attempts on USMLE exams.
For more information please see the Oklahoma State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision website: www.okmedicalboard.org
It is highly recommended that you have recent clinical experience, especially if you have been out of medical school/clinical practice for more than 5 years. In the instance that you have been out of medical school/clinical practice for more than 5 years, we strongly recommend completing step 3 prior to applying to the program. We also strongly recommend that you complete a month long observership position with us before applying. Please refer to the observership information.
