Interview days are planned to provide you maximum interaction with faculty and residents while being considerate of your travel schedules.  Interview days end about 2:00pm to assist with travel planning. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the airport by car and 45 by public transportation.  We encourage you to arrive the day before your interview to allow time to check out the area.

Twelve applicants are scheduled to interview on each interview day. Each applicant will interview with 3 faculty and 1 resident- with about twenty minutes allowed per interview.

Our residents will invite you to join them for dinner the night before. If you are able to attend, you'll be able to learn about our residents and program in a relaxed and informal setting. If logistics make it difficult for you to attend the dinner, you will not be at any disadvantage in the application process.
