Interview Day

Our interview season runs from Early November through Mid January. We will make every attempt to work with other Departments this year in an effort to keep Preliminary candidates from having to travel to the area on two different occasions.

Our Interview Day actually starts the night before the Interview as the Chief Resident and some of the current Residents gather to host dinner for the applicants. This is a casual, relaxed atmosphere where applicants can ask questions and get to know the residents in the program.

Our Interview Day Agenda is typically as follows:
