Interview process

Upon a favorable review of your application, you will be extended an invitation for an interview. Please note interviews are by invitation only. An email will be sent providing information on available dates. Once you accept an interview date, a confirmation will be sent with a more specific agenda for the interview day.

We would love for you to join our current residents for an informal virtual happy hour the night before your interview. Meeting with our current residents will allow you to get to know our area a little better, discuss faculty and rotations, and get a feel for our program.

All interviews will be done virtually, all details will be sent after you are signed up for a specific interview day.
