The Interview Day

We are fully committed to maximizing the virtual interview experience for the 2022-23 Match Season. Our goal is to provide applicants with a warm welcome, many one-on-one interactions with residents and faculty, and a comprehensive overview of the resident experience and life in New Haven. Based on our experience from last season, we will be dividing the day into two half-days, with a morning session from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. EST, and afternoon session from noon - 4 p.m. There will be an overlapping case conference with the residents during the noon hour.

Interview Information

Preliminary Internal Medicine Training

To be eligible for our residency program, you will need to complete a one-year, accredited medicine internship. We are not a categorical program, but there are 10 preliminary slots set aside for neurology applicants in the internal medicine preliminary program at Yale New Haven Hospital. This means that preliminary internal medicine positions are available to every applicant who matches in our advanced Neurology residency. We coordinate efforts with the Department of Internal Medicine to make the match process easier for those who wish to complete their internship and residency at the same institution. If you are selected for an interview with the neurology program, you will not have to complete a separate interview for the YNHH preliminary internal medicine program. You will meet with representatives of the internal medicine program on the Neurology interview day, and will have the opportunity to learn more about the program at that time.

Interview Day

The interview day has been carefully designed to accomplish two main objectives:

  1. Providing applicants with an opportunity to demonstrate their suitability for neurology residency training at Yale.
  2. Ensuring that applicants obtain a comprehensive perspective of our program, including our facilities, opportunities, faculty, staff and residents.
We are carefully planning a number of synchronous and asynchronous experiences during the interview experience, with the intent to provide as much information and insight as possible while preventing "virtual fatigue."

You will be scheduled to meet with approximately 6 interviewers throughout your day, including both residents and faculty. Each interview will be 20 minutes in duration. We have adopted the multiple, short interview approach, because we feel that this allows you to appreciate our diversity, and it allows us to get a more multi-faceted view of you in a short period of time.

Applicants will receive a questionnaire prior to their interview day in order to to identify specific individuals and interest groups that would be particularly helpful to each applicant. We will do our best to match you with some residents and faculty with similar career and personal interests.

There will be a virtual event on the night before the interview day, with the opportunity for one-on-one and small group interactions with current residents in our program.

All of our interviewers are committed to adhering to the NRMP Match Communication Code of Conduct.
