The Interview Day - What to Expect
The interview process at MUSM is an opportunity for our faculty, students and admissions staff to learn more about you and it gives you a chance to learn more about MUSM, our MD program, and to meet with our faculty, staff and students.
Each applicant will have two one-on-one, 30-40 minute interviews. One of the interviews is with an Admissions Committee member who may be a basic science or clinical faculty member or a senior medical student. Please be aware that both interviewers have access to the Primary Application, the Secondary Application, Letters of Evaluation before they interview the applicant and through the rest of that application year. Each interviewer submits his/her comments for the Admissions Committee's consideration. The Admissions Committee consists of 25 voting members, and each Admissions Committee member has access to these comments as well as each applicant's primary and secondary application, letters of recommendation, and declaration of domicile in GA.
Applicants also have lunch with current students. Please note that our current students are assessing you during this interaction, and be aware that unlike interviewers and Admissions Committee members, they do not generally have access to an applicant's record MUSM MD students also submit written comments based on their interaction with applicants at lunch.
We hope you'll enjoy your visit interviewing with us. The Admissions Office welcomes your feedback on your experience with the application and interview process for the MD program at MUSM and will invite you to complete an online anonymous survey after the interview.
If you have any concerns with the fairness of one or more interview encounters you experienced, we encourage you to bring it to the attention the admissions deans before you leave campus at the end of your interview. Please be aware the Admissions Deans and Admissions Office treat this feedback in confidence to evaluate the interview process, and use it to address any concerns applicants may have.
