* Interviews consist of multiple 12-to-15 minute sessions with individual faculty members, residents, and a fellow. Faculty members will have already reviewed the application packet, as well as the objective parameters (test scores, medical school grades and ranking, etc.) and subjective parameters (reports of performance at various rotations and electives, letters of reference, personal statements/essays, etc.). Interviews are tightly structured, with each faculty member focusing on one topic. This scenario is highly effective in determining the applicant's performance potential, work ethic, character, trainability, suitability for the program, and expectations.
