Altus Suite - Assessments of Non-Cognitive Skills for Selection

All applicants applying to the UConn Residency in Anesthesia are required to complete an online suite of assessments (Altus Suite), to assist with our selection process for the 2022/23 application cycle.

Altus Suite is a standardized, three-part online assessment of non-cognitive skills, interpersonal characteristics, and personal values and priorities that we believe are important for successful residents of our program. Altus Suite will complement the other tools that we use for applicant review and evaluation. In implementing Altus Suite, we are trying to further enhance fairness and objectivity in our selection process.

Altus Suite consists of:

  • Casper: 60-90 minute online, open-response situational judgment test
  • Snapshot: 10-minute one-way video interview with standardized questions
  • Duet: 15-minute value-alignment assessment

You will register for Altus Suite for CSP-20101 - U.S. Graduate Medical Education
