Applicants must have completed a psychiatric residency prior to beginning the fellowship (PGY 5 and above) and be qualified to obtain a Georgia medical license.

The program accepts the common application form developed by AAPL (see description and link on AAPL website).  If the common application is used, please also provide documentation of citizenship/visa status as described below).  Alternatively, interested applicants should send a letter of interest and the following materials to Dr. Ash:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Evidence of qualification for a Georgia medical license (in most cases this will be a copy of a current license from a state that has reciprocity with Georgia)
  • A copy of the applicant's medical school diploma
  • Three letters of reference. One of these must be from the training director of the resident's general psychiatry training program documenting expected satisfactory completion of general psychiatry training.
  • Documentation of citizenship or visa status.  Acceptable documentation includes a copy of one of the following: main page of U.S. passport, U.S. birth certificate, green card, or visa.

An interview with the Director is required, and a visit to the program is strongly advised. Interviews are scheduled after completed applications are received. The program typically begins conducting interviews in April. Applications may be submitted at any time, but because we have a rolling admissions process, applicants are encouraged to submit applications submit applications well before May of their PGY-3 year.

Dr. Ash is happy to discuss the program with potential applicants by telephone.
