8:45-12:00 Interviews with Faculty and Residents and Tour
12:00-1:00 Lunch with Residents and Faculty

Please plan to meet inside the Murphy Building (the entrance across from the Holiday Inn Express) if you are staying at the Holiday Inn Express or in the Main Lobby if you will be driving at 7:00 am.  We will meet you there and escort you to our department. 

If you park in the garage, please remember to bring your parking ticket to be validated. 

Applicant Dinner:

An informal dinner is scheduled the evening prior to the Interview Day. It begins at 6:00 (or 6:30) pm and is held at one of the resident's homes. It is a casual event, so feel free to wear jeans!  Spouses, significant others, children, and/or friends are welcome. This is a great time to get to know the residents and their families outside the hospital.  Although not required for ranking, past applicants have found it to be very informative. When you RSVP for your interview day, please RSVP for the dinner as well. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.  Location of the dinner will change with each interview day. We will send address and directions in your interview packet. We will also arrange for transportation from the Holiday Inn Express to the dinner.

If you have additional questions, or need assistance, please contact Doran Shelby, Residency Program Coordinator at (913) 588-6245 or
