Interview process description:

Zoom-based interviews will be held in place of in-person interviews.   Dates and times for these interviews will be determined by the application deadline, and will be shared with interviewees. Zoom-based interviews are 45 minutes in length and are conducted with the Training Director and members of the staff (usually 3-4 people) in early to mid-January.  Applicants are notified of an invitation for a phone interview via email (by December 15th) and are asked to sign up for the interview through an on-line scheduling program.   An Open House will occur in Mid-January, and is intended as an opportunity for candidates to see the site and meet with the Training Director and other staff.  Due to COVID-19, an in-person option for the Open House will likely not be available, but Zoom-based opportunities will be offered so that interviewees are given time with staff and current interns.  Open House is arranged by the Training Director, and is completely optional.  Attending (or deciding not to attend) the Open House will not have an impact on how a candidate is ranked.  The Training Director will have already determined the rank order list before the Open House occurs.
