In an effort to provide flexibility for internship applicants, interviews occur on multiple dates during December and January each year. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all interviews will occur via telephone or online conference platform. For the 2021-22 internship year, we will offer the following virtual interview dates (tentative): 12/18/2020, 1/11/2021, and 1/15/2021. Our interview process takes much of each interview day, and consists of the following: meet & greet with faculty and current interns, introduction and internship year discussion with the training director(s), and two individual interviews with faculty members. The day ends with an open Q/A with the Training Committee and current interns.
If there is a particular faculty member an applicant would like to meet, we ask that applicants make this request known as soon as possible. We will make every effort to arrange time for such a meeting with the identified faculty member.
Applicants who are chosen for an interview will be notified by phone on or before November 30, 2020.
