Interview Day

The Medical Scientist Training Program Admissions Committee will conduct a preliminary evaluation of each candidate’s application materials. Applicants selected by the committee for an interview will be contacted, via email, by the MSTP office, followed by a phone conversation with the Program Director to discuss scientific interests. The interview is two days long, and includes your School of Medicine interview. The program will provide accommodations for you and reimburse travel expenses. Meals will also be provided. You are strongly encouraged to arrive the night before the interview begins.
