Training Verification


The Residency Training Office provides residents and fellows who have completed medical education training at the Louis A. Faillace, MD, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences in McGovern Medical School, part of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston with training verifications. To offset the cost required for credentialing our current trainees, there is a cost associated with requesting a training verification. Please see below for more detailed information.

General Psychiatry Residency Program & Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program

All verification requests must provide an Authorization for Release of Information signed by the alum, instructions for the verification as well as payment. Cost is determined by the number of years since the alum graduated from his or her training program. Please see below for details.

For those who:

  • Graduated 3 years or less – training verifications are completed at no charge.
