Applicant Interviews

The Med-Peds Residency Program will contact (via email or phone) all applicants selected by the Residency Recruitment Committee for an interview. We would like to get to know each applicant, so we typically interview around 10 applicants per day. Interviews occur on Wednesdays from November through January.

All invitations and correspondence will be sent via email, and interview spots fill quickly! Please ensure that the email address on your application is reliable and checked frequently.

Preparing for Interview Day

Historically, the interview day has been our chance to get to know you and show you what we love about our program. Since this year’s interview is entirely virtual, we will be adding information sessions to give you additional opportunities to meet our residents and learn about how we can individualize your training based on your priorities. These Zoom sessions will take the form of a Q&A, and will be open to all applicants. We will only offer a few throughout the year, but they will be recorded for applicants who cannot attend. Check back soon for more information about these information sessions:
