Adult Psychiatry Residency
Welcome to the MGH/McLean Residency Training Program in Psychiatry.
MGH is the oldest voluntary, nonprofit hospital in New England and the third oldest in the United States. Additionally, it is the first and largest teaching hospital affiliated with the Harvard Medical School. As the hospital's founders stated in 1811, the MGH has three primary objectives: caring for the sick, teaching those who are responsible for that care and researching the causes and control of disease. Nearly 200 years later, this mission continues as we pursue excellence in clinical care, teaching and research.

We participate in the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS) in lieu of paper applications. Through ERAS, we require the basics: Application, Transcript, Dean's letter, 3 letters of reference, Personal Statement, Picture and USMLE 1 Board Scores (minimally), as well as any other ERAS requirements. We make a comprehensive review of our applicants. While no minimum score is required, solid passing scores are preferred. To apply through ERAS, please read the 12 steps for medical students listed on the AAMC/ERAS web site by clicking the link below. Also note that your Dean's office plays a large part in your application process.
