Interview & Evaluation

All qualified applications received through the ERAS system applying to the PSTP track will be reviewed by a faculty selection committee. Applicants invited to interview will be notified via email.

All applicants must be interviewed by the Categorical Internal Medicine Residency Program leadership in addition to the faculty leadership for the PSTP.  We strongly recommend that you plan to attend one of two PSTP-specific two-day interviews.  The first day is devoted to the categorical program interview.  The second day consists of a PSTP orientation by the Chair of Medicine and the leadership of this pathway followed by interviews with research and subspecialty faculty.

We have special PSTP programs on these two days. If applicants are not able to attend one of these two PSTP-specific dates, we will interview them on other days.

Upon completion of the interview season, applicant files are reviewed by the PSTP Selection Committee consisting of the program director, the associate director, and a representative panel of affiliated scientists for consideration of ranking.
