Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Department of Emergency Medicine


Interviews are conducted October through December. All interviews take place at the Northwestern campus in downtown Chicago. Interview offers are generally made October through November, after the interview selection committee has had the opportunity to review applications and MSPEs. We will not make interview offers prior to the MSPE release.

All interview days are paired with casual social/education evening events. Additional information will be sent along with interview invitations. Applicants are strongly encouraged to attend these events and should consider them when making travel arrangements. Significant others are welcome to attend these events as well.

All invitations, notifications and correspondence will be sent via e-mail.  Interview spots fill quickly!  Please ensure that the email address on your application is reliable and that you check it frequently.
