Residency Mock Interview Program for MS-4's
To further prepare MS-4’s for residency interviews, the Career Development Center partners with the School of Medicine’s Student Affairs each fall to sponsor a mock interview program. Since the fall of 2020, this program has been moved to a virtual format. Students have the opportunity to select their desired time slot via an online registration system. The center then collects the students’ CVs and personal statements and sends them to their assigned faculty interviewer. On interview day, students are instructed to dress as they would for their residency interview, whether in-person or virtually. Each interview is conducted by a volunteer faculty member with a Career Development Center counselor serving as an observer. Upon completion of the 20-minute interview, students are briefed on their performance and provided constructive feedback. Additionally, students are afforded ample opportunities to have all questions related to the residency interview process addressed. Program dates, including sign-up instructions are advertised through the School of Medicine's Student Affairs listserv.
