Interviews

Each year the Committee members interview 700-750 applicants for the MD program and around 70 for the MD-PhD program. As we receive over 6,000 applications, only a small portion of applicants will be selected for interview. We select applicants for interview according to the extent to which we feel they fulfill our criteria.

We interview on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you are offered an interview, we will notify you by e-mail. The message will indicate available dates and times. If you are able to attend those dates and times, please confirm as soon as possible by telephone or email. If you are unable to come at this time, we are happy to arrange alternative times by telephone or email.

On the day of the interview, please plan to stay for all scheduled activities, which occupy most of the day. The day's activities will include:
  • An information meeting with the Associate or Assistant Dean for Admissions
  • A tour of the medical school
  • Meetings and lunch with medical students
  • Two interviews with members of the Committee on Admissions. The interviews, scheduled for 30 minutes each, are designed to provide you with an opportunity to discuss your decision to pursue a career in medicine, your preparation for medical school, and your life interests and experiences.
