Interview Selection- Last updated 11/11/19

We have now filled all of our interview slots, including those available for the categorical, physician scientist, and primary care programs. From here forward, we will be inviting on a rolling basis when cancellations occur. Because some of those invitations can occur on shorter notice (as the cancellations do), we will reduce our expected response time from seven days to three days. If you are invited off of the waiting list, there will likely be only a single date & time available to consider.

Every applicant (who applied before the October 1st deadline) should now have received an email from us with either an interview offer, a notice of being placed on the waiting list, or a notice that we are unable to offer an interview. If you have not seen an e-mail from our program, be sure to check the e-mail account you listed on your ERAS application. As the season goes on, we will trim down our waiting list in order to be sensitive to the anxiety that this can produce for individuals on the list. It is unlikely that this will happen before mid-December.
