Interview Day Planning

July CA-1 Residents

Since the Resident Recruitment Committee would like to get to know each applicant, we interview 10-12 applicants each day. All interviews and presentations occur in the Department of Anesthesiology Administrative Office. The night before the interview, one of the chief residents hosts a reception for the applicants at a downtown Chicago hotel or restaurant. Several of our residents attend this dinner with the applicants.

At 7:00 am the following day, the Residency Program Manager and Program Assistant meet the applicants for breakfast in the Department of Anesthesiology (Arkes Pavilion, Suite 10-50).  The Program Director will speak to the applicants and then the Education Chair will give a presentation about the training program. When half of the applicants are interviewing, one of the chief residents will give a tour of the facilities. After the tour and interviews conclude, the anesthesiology residents host a lunch for the applicants. All applicants interview with three key faculty members including the Chair, Program Director, and Recruitment Committee Chair in addition to a 4th faculty member.

Charles Hogue, MD (Chair)
Louanne Carabini, MD (Program Director)
Bruno DeCaria, MD (Committee Chair and Education Assistant Director)

4th Interviewer (one from below)
Yogen Asher, MD (Medical Student Elective Director)
Choy Lewis, MD (CT)
Jeremy Deer, MD (Peds)
Hubert Benzon, MD (Peds)

Overall, applicants experience a thorough, well-organized, yet "laid back" interview day. The interview day should conclude by 1:00pm. The Department will pay for your overnight and interview day parking expenses provided you park your car in the Huron Superior Parking A hospital garage (see map) The Department will also pay the parking expenses for those applicants who drive to the dinner.

Hotel Accommodations

Because the hotel is across the street from the hospital, applicants can choose to stay at the Warwick Allerton. The rate is very reasonable in December and January.
