The interview is your gateway to residency. It is the most decisive part of your journey to residency, yet the most anxiety-provoking aspect of the application process. The interview allows program directors and their associates to evaluate your credentials and test your communication skills. The way you present yourself and your story will influence the interviewer’s decision on whether you would be a good fit for their residency program. At the same time, however, through the interview, you will also have a chance to evaluate a program, its strengths and weaknesses, and culture. This will help you understand whether you will be compatible with the program and whether it is truly in line with your goals and aspirations as a doctor.
If you are invited for an interview, you might want to visit the program site earlier to participate in any pre or post-interview activities that may help you get a good feel for the program.
