* The interviews consist of multiple 12 to 15 minute sessions with individual faculty members, a few residents, and a fellow. The faculty members will have already reviewed your application packet; the objective parameters such as test scores, medical school grades and ranking, etc.; and the subjective parameters such as your performances at various rotations and electives, letters of reference, your personal statement/essay, etc. The interviews tend to be well structured, with each faculty member focusing on one topic. Over the years, we have found this scenario to be an effective way to learn about applicants' performance potential, work ethics, character, trainability, suitability for the program, and expectations.
