Interview Day

Welcome! We know how challenging this year must be for all fourth-year students, as you try to navigate the difficulty of deciding where to do residency without being able to physically visit the locations. At the University of Wisconsin, we want to make this year’s process as smooth as possible for you. Below are details about our interview day. All interviews and events will be held virtually this year.

We participate as an “All In” program with the NRMP and are therefore prohibited from hiring outside of the match.  Applications will only be accepted through ERAS.
