What to Expect on Interview Day

The evening prior to your interview, our residents will host a casual dinner, which begins at 6:30 and lasts for 2-3 hours. If you are traveling with a significant other, they are more than welcome to attend.

On the interview day, please arrive between 7:00-7:15 a.m. Bring your parking ticket in with you so we may validate it. Our program coordinator will meet you in the University Hospital main atrium lobby (large open space with patient registration, coffee stand, a large skylight, and a number of large waiting areas). We will have a light continental breakfast for you prior to morning conference. Morning conference will begin at 7:30 a.m. After conference, our program directors and chair will welcome you to Madison and UWHC by saying a few words about our program and community. The group will then split; while one half is interviewing with our selection committee, the other half will partake in tours of the department. At the conclusion, everyone will join for a catered lunch from 12:30 – 2:00. Following lunch, there will be an optional bus tour of Madison from 2:00 – 2:30. The day will conclude by 2:45, depending on your choice of attending the tour.
