Once your interview is scheduled, you will receive an email with more information with details on what you can expect on interview day. Generally, applicants will have 3-5 individual interviews with faculty and residents during their visit. Invited applicants will also have the opportunity to have an informal dinner the evening before interview day with the residents. (Note that this is not mandatory, as we realize many applicants travel under tight deadlines and may not have the availability.)
