Post-COVID Interview Season Considerations

In this unprecedented time, we are aware that our normal process and travel may be limited in this upcoming recruitment season. We plan to prepare for this with the following possible interventions.

Virtual interview day:

  • Family Medicine Residency Program Introduction – Drs. Danielle Carcia, Cresandra Corbin, and Marissa Stabile
  • Twenty minute one-on-one interviews with faculty and/or GME staff
  • Recorded virtual tour presentation with live Q&A session

Applicant Visit Day (if travel ban and precautions lifted by the end of the interview season):

  • Available to all applicants and are personalized based on applicant’s interests and needs.
  • Group functions will be available in late January or early February and will allow for an in-person hospital tour and opportunity to get to know the faculty better.
  • These opportunities are voluntary and are not required nor will they affect your candidacy or rank for the program. They are available as a benefit for applicants who feel their initial interview was not adequate to get a feel for our program and would like more information.
