Interview Day

We host casual get-togethers on Monday and Thursday evenings (except holidays) at 6:30 p.m. Travel companions are welcome to attend. Food will be provided free of charge. This time is designed for you and the other applicants to get to know some of our current trainees and their families.

  • On Mondays, the event will take place at a local Portland eatery. 
  • On Thursdays, a resident will host a dinner in their home.
  • Directions will be sent to you ahead of time once you have signed up. Residents can sometimes help with rides, so see the email for more details.

Your interview day will start at 7:45 a.m. in the Doernbecher Children's Hospital Lobby. Residents will be waiting for you at the admitting desk. There are multiple ways to get to the Doernbecher Lobby from your hotel.
