ACPE applications are received on a continuous basis. Interviews typically begin nine months in advance of the intended unit. Applications for any particular unit will be accepted up to fifteen days prior to the beginning of that unit, unless our student capacity has been reached.
The residency year begins in August and consists of 3 consecutive units. Students interested in one unit of training may apply throughout the year.
Please note: The VA Connecticut Healthcare System, West Haven Campus, is an additional educational placement location of the Bridgeport Hospital CPE Summer and Part-time Programs. Dates below for these units are the same at both locations.
