An email will be sent to you prior to your interview date with the Zoom weblink and password.  We typically hold two interview days every year, each day is split into two groups- a morning and an afternoon group.  As much as the day is for us to interview you, we hope that you will get a good sense for our program, residents, and facilities as well.       

Each interview sessions will start with an introduction Powerpoint presentation, followed roughly by a 15-20 minute interview with faculty and residents.  There will be breakout sessions with our residents during your down time.
