Interview Day

Scheduling an interview

Invited candidates will receive an email with instructions to schedule an interview using our online application system. Any applicant needing to request a change in scheduled interview dates must contact the Office of Admissions for assistance

Interview Format

Our interview day has been designed to give us insight into the real character of each applicant. After a welcome breakfast and information session, candidates will learn about our student support structures from Student Affairs and Financial Aid, participate in an in-depth discussion of the CMSRU curriculum, and tour the campus. Applicants will each participate in a traditional interview, as well as engage in simulated clinical scenarios. These scenarios do not expose the candidate to risk, require no background medical knowledge, and do not involve any medical procedures. Rather, each applicant will be asked to react to a typical verbal patient encounter, and be evaluated on his or her approach and instincts.
