Applicant and Interview Process

Thank you for considering WMed Emergency Medicine for your residency training! These are unprecedented times and our mission remains to fulfill your educational needs given any situation that might arise. In the interest of everyone’s safety, our program will be following the recommendations of the Coalition for Physician Accountability governing residency interviews.

Applications must be submitted through ERAS. We review applications on a rolling basis and send interview offers throughout the season. If you’re offered an interview, you will get a notification through the Interview Broker system so you may schedule your interview date.

We understand that the current situation can cause stress and we are here to streamline this process for you as much as possible. We are working hard to ensure that you will still have an informative, interactive and enjoyable time interviewing with us while learning about our program to help you make the most informed decision about your future.

Interview Day

Prior to your interview date, we will provide you with program overview materials for you to review at your convenience. Your virtual visit to WMed will be held entirely via Microsoft Teams. The interview day will be divided into two sessions - a morning and an afternoon group. We start your session with a welcome from our administrative team. After, you will have four virtual interviews with faculty and residents. In between the morning and afternoon session, you will spend time with the other applicants and some of our current residents so that we can get to know you and you can get to know us.

We look forward to hearing from you! We think you'll find that WMed is a dynamic institution and that Kalamazoo is a delightful city in which to work and live.

The WMed Department of Emergency Medicine follows the guidelines set forth by the National Residency Matching Program for residency programs participating in the Match. A sample WMed residency contract can be viewed here.
