  Hi. Programs can set graduation cut offs in their computers when they review ERAS applications. Some programs have 3 year cut offs, some 5 or 10 years. This information is available in their website.

They will not see your application if it is filtered out by the cut offs. However, there is a way out of it. If you know someone, a resident or a faculty member, ask them to give your AAMC ID (you will get this when you register for ERAS) to the program coordinator or the program director. Most of the time they will give considerations to old grads who were clinically active prior to application especially if it is the same field. It will look good because it will show that you really are dedicated to Psychiatry.

The observerships will help you get LoRs from US doctors. This will not be considered as a clinical experience though.

  You will be having chances dont give up. Some programs will be having the graduation cut-off but there may be other programs which may have graduation cut-off and some may not have the graduation cut-off. Try to look for them and apply.

You need to hve high scores in all the steps and gain continuous hands-on clinical experience in the speciatly you want to apply for match. Your home residency will be helpful for the application and make the CV strong.
