We know this year the interview process will be different than expected, but our goal continues to be to get to know each applicant personally, as well as provide ample opportunities for applicants to get to know our program and our amazing residents! One of the most important aspects of interview day is capturing the amazing family feeling residents in our program have, and we hope that shines through, even virtually!
This year, all of our interviews will be conducted virtually through the Zoom platform and will be scheduled on designated afternoons during the months of November through January. In keeping with external organizations’ policies and national guidelines, our program will not grant in-person interviews or second-look visits to our hospital (even for local students) in order to prevent disadvantaging any applicant. Candidates who are selected for interview invitations will be contacted via email through the ERAS system and will be given instruction on how to schedule their virtual interview day on ERAS. Interview dates have a limited number of slots; therefore, please be sure to respond early in order to secure the day that works best for you.
Specific interview day schedules, links and details will be emailed to invited applicants prior to their interview day. The schedule will include a brief introduction and overview of the program, as well as interviews with the Program Director, other program leadership representatives and faculty. There will also be a virtual tour of the Hospital and a Resident & Applicant Meet and Greet session. Links for upcoming Grand Rounds presentations will be provided as a reference and example of one of our didactics/educational activities. Post-interview day virtual activities will also be planned to answer any subsequent questions and to keep connected with each other during this recruitment process.
