We realize that interviewing for residency can be a stressful experience. Below you will find an overview of our interview process to help potential applicants plan in the coming months.
Each academic year, we will conduct interviews on Saturdays from October to January. We interview 18 applicants per day on average. The night before the interview there is an optional dinner that starts around 7 p.m. The dinner is run by our residents and does not have any bearing on your actual interview. It is purely an opportunity to ask any questions at all about the program and to get to know some of our current residents.
Our interviews are held at UConn John Dempsey Hospital in Farmington, CT. The day begins with breakfast at 8 a.m. The rest of the day will consist of a presentation about our program by one of our residents along with another opportunity to ask any questions you may have. In addition you will have 4 individual interviews: 2 interviews with attending faculty members that should last about 40 minutes each, a 10 minutes interview with one of the chief residents, and a 10 minute interview with our chairman, Dr. Gross. The interview day will conclude by noon at the latest.
We hope you find this information helpful, and we look forward to meeting you if you choose to consider joining our UConn Anesthesiology Residency Program.
