Selection of Candidates

Application review is done during the end of October and all invitations for interviews are sent out in early November. We interview approximately 80 candidates each year. Although we receive applications from many hundreds of well-qualified candidates, it is not possible to interview all who apply. Each application is reviewed in its entirety with an interest in diverse candidates demonstrating overall academic excellence, proven leadership ability, work experience, personal character and career development potential.

Interview dates for the 2017-18 Match are as follows:

  • Saturday, December 3rd, 2016
  • Friday, December 9th, 2016
  • Saturday, January 7th, 2017

We do not offer individual interviews outside of the scheduled group sessions above. Any candidate who is invited to interview must contact the surgery education office to confirm their acceptance of the interview offer by the R.S.V.P. date.

If you have questions or need more information, please contact Gina Coluccio, Manager of Surgical Education.
