• Application Timeline

    The application submission deadline is February 1 of each year. For most candidates, the application will be due by February 1 of the PGY-3 year. Those candidates who are in a clinical fellowship may apply by February 1 of their first fellowship year.

    All candidates should time their application submission so that PSDP-sponsored research training will begin 17 months after applying. For example, fellows who entered the PSDP in July 2012 would have applied by February 1, 2011.

    The Program Administrator will provide the application form with instructions to candidates verified as eligible to apply. Candidates initiate this verification by sending the Eligibility Form to the Program Administrator.

    Upon acceptance into the program, all PSDP fellows are expected to begin their protected research time on July 1, 17 months after submission of the application.

    Application submission timelines are shown in the diagram at right.
