Interviews are conducted October through December. All interviews take place at the Northwestern campus in downtown Chicago. To make scheduling convenient and fair, we will send the majority of our interview invitations via E-mail using Interview Broker at 7:30pm CT on Tuesday, October 10thWe 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. 

In collaboration with Interview Broker and the Application Process Improvement Task Force through the Council for Residency Directors (CORD), we have elected to participate in the monitoring feature that provides alerts for applicants that are scheduled to interview at two programs on the same day. ​
