Interview Day

Emergency Medicine Residency Program

Getting to Wilmington Hospital and Christiana Hospital is very easy as we are right off of interstate 95. The Philadelphia International airport is 20 miles north of Wilmington Hospital and 30 miles north of Christiana Hospital.

Interview dates

We typically extend invitations to interview approximately 10-14 days after the MSPE is released. We interview on Tuesdays and Fridays from early November until the end of January. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and we continue to send offers to interview throughout the Fall/Winter. The timing of an invitation is not indicative of your strength as an applicant, but simply a reflection of the time intensive process it takes to thoroughly review your materials as we consider the entirety of your application in the decision-making process.

We never offer more invitations than we have open spots to interview, so rest assured you will have a spot when you get an invite. We utilize scheduling software, so if you get invited for an interview, please schedule your date as soon as possible.

There are so many amazing students who apply to our program, and although we would love to meet as many as we can, due to the sheer volume of interest, we do limit our invitations to a select group of applicants. We look forward to reviewing your materials, and we wish everyone the best of luck in the match.

Format

If you are selected for an interview, you will be invited to a meet and greet social event the night prior. We encourage all of our applicants to attend this fun event where you can mingle with residents from each class in an informal fashion.

You will be invited into a morning and afternoon session. The morning session generally runs from 9am until early afternoon. The afternoon session will start with lunch and end by 4 p.m. You will have a tour, lunch and presentation providing an overview of our program.

You are welcome to observe our ED at any point after the interview.
