Interview Day

Medical school interviews take place in the Ramesh K. Gandhi Medical Education Center, which is also called White Hall.

Interviews are granted to applicants by invitation of the Boonshoft School of Medicine Admissions Committee. Given the need to conduct interviews safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be utilizing the Virtual Interview Tool for Admissions (VITA) administered by the American College of Medical Colleges and hosting a live virtual interview day. Those applicants selected to interview will be required to complete the VITA and participate in the live virtual interview day. 

The live virtual interview day will consist of two one-to-one interviews lasting approximately 45 minutes each. The Office of Admissions will provide supplemental videos and resources for candidates to view prior to the live virtual interview day. Candidates will also have the opportunity to engage with the Boonshoft School of Medicine students and staff virtually. 

The purpose of the interview is to gather information about the applicant's preparation for a career as a physician and to share information about our program. The live virtual interview is not the primary source of information for the committee, but is an integral portion of the application. 

We are pleased you are interested in our medical school and look forward to meeting you.

Student Home & Hearth Program

The Student Home & Hearth Program is designed to link interviewing students with current medical students to save money on hotel accommodations and/or airport transportation for interviewees. Medical students involved in the program are diverse in background and education as well as in stage of medical school training, and all of them have volunteered to have interviewees stay in their homes for an evening. If you stay with a current student, you should plan to pay for your own meals and, since most of our medical students live off campus, you may still need a rental car. You will receive additional information about the program from the Office of Student Affairs when your interview is confirmed.
