Updates for the 2021 Recruitment Cycle During the COVID-19 Pandemic

With infection control policies for COVID-19 in flux for across the country, we will provide two options for this year’s recruitment process. A wholly virtual recruitment day will be available for those who prefer that. For those who wish to visit our institution to meet our faculty and fellows in person, that can be arranged after the virtual interview. The decision to visit is at the discretion of the applicant and will not affect our Match rank list. Plans are subject to change according to the state of COVID-19. We encourage you to learn more about our program prior to your visit by exploring the resources below. We look forward to meeting you!
