Virtual Interviews

This year our Internal Medicine Residency has made the decision to follow the recommendations and guidance from the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine:

"In the interest of preserving the health and safety of applicants and programs as well as promoting an efficacious and fair process,AAIMM recommends that residency programs should conduct all interviews virtually for the 2023-2024 recruitment season. "
