The Interview

We will interview about 108 candidates for 8 positions beginning in early November and ending in late January. Orientation for all new residents begins July 1, so you must be available for that start date and be licensed in Iowa by June 30.

I got an interview! Now what?

What to expect the night before the interview

We will arrange for a shuttle to pick you up from your hotel lobby that will take you to a downtown restaurant for dinner with current residents and spouses/significant others. Dress is informal, and remember to wear a winter coat!

This dinner is an opportunity for you to get to know the residents, enjoy downtown Iowa City, and get answers to any questions you may have about the program or life in Iowa City.

What to expect on the day of the interview

We will meet you at the main entrance of the hospital at your designated appointment time. We suggest business attire for your interview day.

Your day will include: an overview of the program; a tour of the facilities; an interview with the chief resident, program director and at least two faculty members; and, a luncheon with the current residents.
