Helpful Interview Day Information
Interviews will be conducted virtually, through Thalamus (https://thalamusgme.com/).
A typical interview day consists of two (2) interviews, that can take approximately a total of one (1) hour:
- Program Director (20-30min): 1:1 Interview
- Panel Interview (20-30min): This will be a format consisting of a representative from our physician faculty, a representative from the Human Resources Department and the Program Coordinator.
If selected for an interview, you’ll receive an invitation from Thalamus. We’ll be offering both morning and afternoon sessions to accommodate and respect all time zones.
Once you schedule an interview with us, you’ll receive a detailed email from Thalamus with information for your interview sessions, application instructions for virtual interviews and other pertinent information.
We will be offering social “Meet & Greet” events for you to meet with our current residents/fellows and learn more about us and our organization. These events are typically scheduled one week prior to the interview day.
At this time, our Residency and Fellowship Programs are unable to offer Second Looks for applicants.
Certainly, this rapid pivot to virtual interviews has been a learning curve for all of us. We remain committed to supporting any individual needs or accommodations that we can provide.
We would be delighted to help you with any accommodations and advanced preparation for Interview Day! For any questions about your interview day, please reach out to Marina McLaughlin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
