VCU's Summer Institute in Psychiatry for Medical Students has been temporarily suspended due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to reinstating the in-person program when it is safe to do so. Please check back here in spring 2023 for more information.

Available to medical students across the U.S., the Summer Institute in Psychiatry for Medical Students provides exciting, intensive experience in the specialty of psychiatry. This free, week-long institute consists of seminars and clinical exposure, and students receive a certificate of participation at the end of the program. Students entering M2, M3 and M4 are eligible, and we accept up to 12 applicants per year.

How to Apply

Please contact our program coordinator, listed below, for application information. All applicants should include a one-page personal statement conveying their interest in the summer institute.
