Interview Information

During the 2016-2017 recruitment season, we will be interviewing candidates for one PGY-2 residency position, to begin in July 2018.

After a thorough review of ERAS applications, invitations will be emailed to those individuals selected to interview. We plan to host two or three Saturday interview days, on dates to be announced at a later time. All will occur between November 2016 and January 2017.

Each applicant who interviews will meet with five Radiation Oncology faculty members.

We offer our applicants the opportunity to get to know our residents in greater depth by inviting them to a lunch at a local restaurant at the end of their interview morning. We encourage our applicants to make time in their schedules to attend this most valuable event. Details about these gatherings will be sent to applicants who are offered an interview spot.
