Our residency program places an emphasis on building a resident body that reflects the diversity and cultural plurality of the patients we serve.  We STRIVE for diversity and seek to recruit strong candidates from a multitude of backgrounds.  This value is shared by the College – please visit the Institutional Diversity and Inclusion webpage for additional information.

Interview Procedures

Content

In accordance with the guidelines of our national organizations, BCM Emergency Medicine will be offering only virtual interviews during the current application season. Our program is committed to a holistic review of all applications which considers a broad range of attributes, and we do not filter by predetermined metrics.

We anticipate releasing our first round of interview offers on or about Oct. 19, 2022. Offers will be sent after 5 p.m. (CST) to minimize interruption to education/patient care during daytime hours.

Those receiving invitations during the first round will be able to select their preferred interview date 24 hours after receiving the invitation.

Our program limits interview invitations to the number of interview slots available.

Applicants will be given a minimum of 72 hours after receiving an interview invitation to accept or decline prior to the program releasing the interview slot to another candidate.

Our program does not currently plan to offer in-person second-looks, but will inform all candidates invited to interview if the opportunity becomes available. We recognize that many candidates may not have the ability or means to travel. Therefore, if second-looks are offered, whether or not a candidate visits the program will in no way affect the status of their application.
