Do any or all programs require a Chairman's Letter from a university Psychiatry Department Chair?
Thanks

UNC does, per website. I just had a meeting with my Chair strictly to obtain such a letter.

I personally didn't run into any programs that specifically required a chair letter. The only "requirements" I ran into were ones that required two psych letters. That was the exception rather than the rule for programs I applied to, though.

it would be the exception that proves the rule that asks for a Chair letter. and even programs that ask for it like UNC do not require it.

but you should hopefully be eagerly reviewing programs and know what the requirements are for those you are interested in...

I didn't have one for UNC and they offered me an interview and nobody ever mentioned it at all...
