Your Interview

Each year, the Department of Internal Medicine is fortunate to interview between 350-400 qualified applicants for a combination of Categorical and Preliminary Medicine positions. These candidates are chosen from an applicant pool of over 7,500.

Applicants are selected from ERAS (Electronic Residency Application System) using selection criteria designated by the House Staff Selection Committee, a 16-member committee of faculty that are charged with selecting, reviewing and ranking the applicants each year to create a successful intern class for the following July.

Interview Dates

Our interview season runs from Early November through Mid January. 

Interview Day

Our Interview Day this year will reflect the new restrictions put in place as a result of Covid-19. We are still working on the details, however we do know we will offer Virtual interviews and we will offer an optional "hang out" most likely the night before the interview with the Chief Resident and some of the current Residents. This will be a casual, relaxed atmosphere where the applicants can ask questions and get to know the Residents in the program.
