Intern Interviews 2016

February 2016 - Volume 20, Issue 2

And now we wait. Match day is on Friday this year, March 18th.

We completed our interviews in what seems like record time this year because we started so early in November. Because of so many GW students, who we guarantee will get an interview, we end up with seeing over 500 students out of the 4,000 or so applications we receive.

We interviewed approximately 350 categorical applicants, 150 preliminary program applicants and 50 Primary Care applicants. Interviewing 15-20 applicants three times a week for three months was no easy task but this year things went incredibly smooth.

Thanks to all the faculty who interviewed and all the hard work put in by the staff. Now that we are finished except for the waiting, I can’t help but think there must be a better way. Given the amount of money spent by us and the applicants, the time involved in travelling and the overall work involved from choosing applicants to completion of interviews someone needs to develop an easier system. But that is for next year, I hope.
