Interview Formats and Recruiting Activities

Please see this important memo regarding interviews.

Interviews will be conducted virtually for all residency and fellowship programs through Thalamus ( or Webex, depending upon the program.

A typical interview day consists of two (2) interviews, which 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 resident, and the program coordinator.

Some programs may conduct more than two interviews or one single panel coordinator.

If selected for an interview, you’ll receive an invitation from Thalamus (if applicable). Most programs will be offering both morning and afternoon sessions to accommodate and respect all time zones.

Once you schedule an interview with us, you’ll receive detailed information for your interview sessions, plus a digital program-specific information package to help prepare for interviews and learn more about our program, along with other pertinent information.

We will be offering virtual, social “Meet & Greet” events for you to meet with our current residents and fellows and learn more about us and our organization. These events are typically scheduled one week prior to the interview day.

Some programs will be offering optional on-site visits for applicants who have been selected to interview. Your presence or absence from these on-site events will have no bearing on how you are ranked. The purpose of the optional on-site visit is to allow you a better feel for the program and see the physical space of our clinical learning environment.

Information regarding logistics and formatting of interviews and other recruitment activities will be provided by each program at or near the time of the interview invitation. For programs that will offer optional on-site visits, applicants will receive more details and RSVP instructions in our interview correspondence with you.

We would be delighted to help you with any accommodations and advanced preparation for Interview Day. Please reach out to Marina McLaughlin, Director of Resident and Fellow Talent Acquisition, at with any questions about your interview day.
