The Interview

We will be interviewing candidates for 3 positions beginning in October and ending in mid-January. Orientation for all new residents begins June 24th, so you must be available for that start date and be licensed in Iowa by the middle of June at the latest.

  • I got an interview! Now what?
  • What should I expect the day of my interview?

We have decided to utilize Zoom for the best interview experience. Specific directions will be provided ahead of the interview.

Interviews will be approximately 4 hours in the morning starting at 8:30 a.m.

There will be a total of 4 candidates interviewing each day and approximately 4 AP and CP faculty interviewers will be included.

The interviews will begin with a Greeting & Program Overview from faculty. From there, you will be invited to join a breakout session (1:1) with an interviewer. You will interview for approximately 25 minutes with each interviewer. There will be a total of 4 1:1 interviews. You will then meet with Department Chair and Executive Officer. Next you will meet with our Chief Residents for a slideshow about the University of Iowa and virtual tour of our facility. Finally, you will also have a chance to meet and ask questions with current residents of our program. This is an opportunity for you to meet some of your potential future colleagues and get many of your questions answered. Don’t be shy about asking about the things that are on your mind.
