The goal of the residency program application process is to identify applicants who are ready to train in residency and whose values and goals align with a program’s mission and goals. In general, interviews take place after program staff have reviewed applications and selected a subset of applicants from whom they want to collect more information. Being invited to interview is an indication that a program is interested in understanding more about you, the person behind the application. After interviews, rank order lists are created.
