The Combined Residency Program participates in the Neurology Residency Matching Program under the direction of the Central Application Service (CAS). You can contact CAS at their website or by calling (415)447-0350. The matching number for the Combined Residency Program is 182.55 Brown U -PSYCH/NEURO. Interested applicants should complete the application form for the CAS and mail it to CAS. A Dean's letter, medical school transcript, and three letters of recommendation are also required. Doing the PGY I year in Internal Medicine at Rhode Island Hospital is recommended. If you are interested in applying to our Medicine program at Rhode Island Hospital for a PGY I position, you must go through the ERAS. The Medicine program will not accept paper applications. Once a complete application is submitted we will then contact you regarding the status of your application, and selected applicants will be invited for interviews.
Interested applicants are encouraged to do an elective rotation with us in Neuropsychiatry/Behavioral Neurology prior to the match. This is an excellent opportunity to meet the faculty and residents involved in the combined residency and to get an insiders view of combined residency training at Brown. The contact for the elective is Lori Avallone at (401) 863-2293.
