Interviews

Applicants chosen to interview will be invited to the main OHSU campus in Portland. Interviews are held on Wednesdays and begin at 7:30AM with breakfast and a meet and greet. Candidates then have a chance to attend rheumatology grand rounds. One-on-one interviews with faculty follow - on average candidates meet with six faculty members. Halfway through the day, our current fellows take the interviewees to lunch, providing insight to our fellowship program and life at OHSU. The day ends at 3:30PM, allowing candidates to explore a bit of Portland and its culinary delights.
