Given the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with national recommendations, all of
our interview days this year will occur virtually via Zoom.
We recognize that virtual interview days pose numerous
challenges, including making it more difficult to get a sense for the culture
and feel of our program and division. However, we have carefully constructed
the interview days to ensure that applicants have ample opportunity to meet
with our outstanding fellows and faculty, and so that applicants can highlight
their numerous strengths and talents.
We also know that the COVID-19 pandemic may have altered your
planned clinical rotations or ability to engage in research or educational
opportunities. This is not a problem; we will review all applications with this
consideration in mind.
We look forward to reviewing your application and to getting to
know you better. Please reach out at any time if we can help answer questions
about our program or the application process.
