Program Application

In line with other addiction psychiatry fellowships nationwide and as a  means to increase exposure to addiction psychiatry training, in July 2021 we began utilizing the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  With the 2022-2023 academic year, similar to other psychiatry fellowships, the addiction psychiatry fellowships began using the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), matching in the fall along with the Medicine and Pediatric Specialties Match.  The fall match date was selected to give increase planning time for incoming fellows.   Applications for the 2025-26 academic year will be accepted in ERAS sometime in early July (TBD)- to obtain a token to apply via ERAS, you should contact the ERAS Fellowships Documents Office (EFDO) at 215-966-3940 or by clicking here

Please contact Amanda Wagner ( with any further questions.

The training period in addiction psychiatry is 12 months. Applicants must have completed an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited psychiatry residency prior to entering the program. Training in addiction psychiatry that occurred during the general residency training will not be credited toward the one year fellowship requirement.
