The application submission deadline is March 10 of each year. For most candidates, the application will be due by March 10 of the PGY-3 year. Those candidates who are in a clinical fellowship may apply by March 10 of their first fellowship year.

All candidates should time their application submission so that PSDP-sponsored research training will begin 16 months after applying. For example, fellows who entered the PSDP in July 2014 would have applied in 2013.

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, 16 months after submission of the application.

Application submission timelines are shown in the diagram below.
