How to Apply

Our Interview Process

We participate in the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). Interviews are granted to exceptional candidates following receipt of a complete ERAS application. All applications that are received are reviewed.  Invitations are sent via email and normally start near the beginning of October.  Our interview dates are in November and December on a Wednesday.  

The interview session begins in the morning with light breakfast around 0730.  Our Chair, Dr. Repke gives an introduction starting at 0800.  The Program Director, Dr. Thomas, gives program introduction at 0830.  Interviews with various faculty, fellows, and residents begin at 0900.  There are 4 interviews of 20 minutes each and a tour from a PGY1.  The day concludes with lunch open to faculty, residents, and fellows in order to get an opportunity to meet our candidates.  This finishes by 1300.  

The candidates upon accepting the invitations to interview are sent specific instructions from the Program Coordinator outlining the interview day.  They are asked to report to C3626 to begin the interview day.
