The Interview

Preparing for Interview

If you are selected to come to Iowa for an interview, you will receive an email inviting you to interview at Iowa.

You are responsible for making your transportation to Iowa (either by driving or flights), including shuttle.

Nearest airports are:

Cedar Rapids (code CID) – approximately 25 min drive
Quad Cities/Moline (code MLI) – approximately one hour drive

When making flight arrangements, please fly the evening before your interview and make your departing flight 5 p.m. or later.

Once you arrive at the airport (if using CID), you will be escorted to the hotel via Airport Express service. We make these reservations for you as well as cover the cost.

Our department will pay for one night stay at the hotel (we will make reservations for you). The hotel offers a shuttle service to the hospital. Please let them know at check-in that you will be requiring this service.

Approximately one week prior to your interview, you will receive an e-mail with a copy of your itinerary, hotel information and directions to our office once you arrive at the hospital.
