Does anyone know something substantial about:
- St Luke’s (in PA)
- Cleveland clinic
- mountain health in Asheville, NC?
Everyone’s websites all basically sound the same and it’s hard to decipher which ones to actually go to. Thanks!

Anyone applying this week?
any experience on how late applications are handled? I believe many spots go unfilled every year, so I was wondering if programs are willing to review applications submitted this late. Or a better way to put this, is there a usually pre defined interview period or interviews are scheduled per application submissions mostly.
For a lot of the interviews I have been on this week and last week, I was either the last interview day or close to the last, and many PDs and attendings talked about getting ready to do their rank order list. I don't want to be a pessimist but I am all but certain this is too late, as many programs only had several dates for interview and had filled their interview spots when I tried to change my interview date.
Join me next cycle
I've done three interview so far and agree with the above. I was expecting tough behavioral interview questions - how do you deal with conflicts, how do you give negative feedback, etc., but interviews have been much more focused on getting to know you and determining if you will be a good fit with the team. Most seem to have you interview with a few physicians, an advanced practice provider, and then some type of interdisciplinary team interview with nurses, chaplain, social worker, etc. Total cliche, but I think the best advice would be to be yourself and talk genuinely about your experiences, interests and your life both inside and outside medicine. I've met such wonderful and interesting people; interviewing has confirmed for me that this is where I belong in medicine. Hope I match somewhere!
