III. RESIDENCY TRAINING COMMITTEES
The Admissions Committee is a subcommittee of the Resident Education Steering Committee (RESC). The responsibility of the Admissions Committee is the selection of applicants with strong academic records, who have the potential to become superior psychiatrists, and to make significant contributions to the field. The membership of the Admissions Committee consists of the Residency Program Director (Chair), at least five other regular faculty members of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences representing all clinical sites (UWMC, Harborview, Seattle VA, SCH) and six senior residents (PGY-3s or PGY-4s). The Admissions Committee meets weekly for 2 hours per week from November until mid-February, and for a whole day in mid-February to make the Match list. The committee considers PGY-1 and PGY-2 applicants according to the program's Selection and Admissions Procedures.
The Idaho Track have its own Admissions Committee. Applicants to Idaho track are also reviewed by the Admissions Committee in Seattle, which has veto power regarding any Idaho Track applicant, since Idaho Track residents spend 1-2 years of training in Seattle.
