The application submission deadline is April 15, 2024.  For most candidates, the application will be due by April 15 of the PGY-3 year. Those candidates who are in a clinical fellowship may apply by April 15 of their first fellowship year.

All candidates should time their application submission so that PSDP-sponsored research training will begin ~15 months after applying. For example, fellows who entered the PSDP in July 2023 would have applied in 2022.

The Program Administrator will provide the application form with instructions to candidates verified as eligible to apply. Please note candidates must be endorsed by their sponsoring institution (institutions are limited to no more than two applicants) before sending the Eligibility Form to the Program Administrator. It is advantageous for the applicant to submit their eligibility form as soon as possible so they may have more time to complete their full application before the April 15, 2024 deadline (should they be deemed eligible).

Applicants are notified in June. Upon acceptance into the program, all PSDP fellows are expected to begin their protected research time on July 1, ~15 months after submission of the application.
