What an interview day looks like:

For the 2023-2024 application season, the interview experience will be entirely remote using Zoom, but applicants can still expect good exposure to our faculty and trainees with plenty of opportunities to learn about the program. The night before the interview, applicants have the opportunity to join current residents on Zoom for a chat session. On the interview day, you will get to experience a morning educational session, chats with our program leadership, one-on-one interviews with faculty, and a virtual lunch session with our residents. The day usually concludes between 2:00 and 3:00 PM.

Our Commitment to Diversity

Diversity stands with ethics, integrity, and academic excellence, as a cornerstone of University culture. The University promotes an inclusive and welcoming environment that embraces the full spectrum of human attributes, perspectives, and disciplines. When people of different backgrounds come together, they exchange ideas, question assumptions (including their own), and broaden the horizons for us all. A University of Virginia community rich in diversity affords every member equal respect and provides a forum for understanding our differences as well as our commonalities.
