Interview Information for the 2020-2021 Interview Season

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our interview day will be a little different this interview season. We have worked hard to ensure you will still have an informative, interactive and enjoyable interview session.

The interview day will be via Zoom. The day will start with a welcome and program overview with our Program Coordinator. After a short icebreaker activity and brief break, you will have five virtual individual interviews. In between interviews, you may spend time with the other applicants, program coordinator and some of our residents, so that we can get to know each other.

After you are finished with all your interviews, you will have the opportunity to join a breakout session with a couple of our residents to ask any outstanding questions before signing off.

We look forward to meeting you and wish you luck during this interview season.
