Interviews
Interviews go out in late November, December, and January. Be cognizant of this timeline when scheduling rotations. Some programs do not send out any interviews, and a rotation is essentially required to be considered. Others will only interview those that do not rotate with the program, and the rotation serves as the interview. For those sites that do have an interview process, there may be some medical knowledge questions (multiple choice test), fine motor skill testing, and checking your visual acuity - in addition to the basic interview questions and routine.
