We offer 15 postgraduate first-year positions annually. Application to The Ohio State University Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health is done through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS); please contact your medical school for instructions about the process.

- We have several subspecialty training faculty in the areas of addiction medicine and child & adolescent, consultation-liaison, and forensic psychiatry whom you may have the opportunity to meet during the interview process.
