Pre-Interview Meet and Greet
There will be a pre-interview meet and greet with the program’s residents ONLY. There will not be faculty present. This event has been scheduled for 6:30EST and a Zoom link will be provided
We encourage all invitees to attend.
The Dermatology residency program will be conducting interviews via Zoom. Four interview sessions over two days will be available for invitees to schedule. There will be a morning session beginning at 7:00AM EST and an afternoon session beginning at 12:00PM EST. We hope by providing these different sessions, it will help accommodate candidates from different time zones.
The interviewees will have a succession of 15minute interview with faculty groups in breakout rooms.
We ask that interviewees ensure they have a stable internet connection and a secondary way of connecting to the Zoom interview. Laptop or tablet.
We also will confirm the best way to reach interviewees by phone, if needed during the interview day.
This virtual process is new to our program, and we will do everything we can to have a smooth interview day for all interviewees.
