Each year, the Department of Internal Medicine is fortunate to interview between 400-450 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 DatesOur interview season runs from Late October through Mid January.
Our Interview Day this year will reflect the new restrictions put in place as a result of Covid-19, which means we will only offer Virtual interviews conducted via Zoom. There will be an optional Zoom "hang out" the Sunday before your scheduled 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.
Our proposed Interview Day Agenda we be as follows:
|11:00am - 12:00pm||
Program Director Welcome (Slide Show, Program Details, Q & A) - Dr. Stephen J. Knohl
|12:00pm - 1:00pm||
|1:00pm - 4:00pm||
20 minute interview with faculty member and 10 minute interview with Dr. Knohl.
Concurrently, the Program Administrator, Program Staff, the Chief Residents and residents from all PGY Levels will be available to answer questions while you wait for your interview.
A virtual Happy Hour with the Internal Medicine Residents will take place the Sunday prior to your scheduled Interview. Zoom link will be sent from the Chief Residents via ERAS.
