Interview

Your Interview

When we receive your completed supplemental application, we will review your credentials in considering whether to interview you. All interview offers are made via e-mail, and you will not be admitted to the school without an interview.

We receive over 7,000 applications for 148 spots in each class. Obviously, we cannot interview everyone; only those candidates we believe best match our program are extended an invitation to interview.

After your interview, the Admissions Committee will notify you by mail whether you have been accepted, not accepted, or placed on the wait-list for admission starting February 15th. 

Your Interview Day

Due to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, UPSOM will be conducting all interviews for the 2020-2021 admissions cycle remotely. Please check back here for more details as they become available.

All interviews will be scheduled online via a Zoom-based platform, and on the interview day the applicant will interview one-on-one with a faculty member, a current medical student, and participate in a team based exercise.  In addition, the school will be evaluating some of the answers to the AAMC Video Iinterview Tool for Admissions (VITA) questions.
