2023-2024 Residency Interview Process
The University of Arkansas will be conducting online interviews for the 2023-2024 match. Interviews are held on Thursdays, October through January. We know there is a level of benefit from in person interactions, and while not all interactions can be replicated in a online environment, we are working to provide an optimal virtual experience that will allow candidates to maximize their remote interactions with our faculty and residents.
Each candidate will meet with the Program Director and five members of our resident selection committee. There will be a Q&A session with the Chief Residents. There is an open house with resident representatives the evening before.
Virtual Interview Dates
We will hold two virtual interview sessions for each date with a resident-led open house the Wednesday evening prior.
- October 27
- November 3 and 17
- December 1, 8, and 15
- January 5, 12, 19
