Residency Interviews

2017-2018 Interview Dates

Application and Interview Process

Candidates who are selected for an interview will receive an e-mail from the Office of Medical Education (OME) with more information about scheduling an interview.

Interviews are typically scheduled October through December and run from 7:30 a.m. to about 2:30 p.m.  Candidates will receive email confirmations outlining details of the interview day and travel accommodations; additional information will be sent the week prior to a candidate’s interview.

During the interview day, candidates will meet with the program director and faculty, have lunch with the residents, tour Norton Children’s Hospital, meet the support staff and attend a conference, such as Morning Report.

All candidates will be invited to join some of our residents for an informal dinner at a local Louisville restaurant the night before the interview. Casual attire is appropriate for dinner.

Travel and Accommodations

The Department of Pediatrics will pay for one night’s lodging for out-of-town candidates at The Brown Hotel, located at 335 West Broadway in downtown Louisville. Please note that additional costs (e.g. movies, food, hotel parking, etc.) will be the guest’s responsibility. Hotel arrangements will be made by the Office of Medical Education. Candidates should not make their own hotel reservations.

Arrangements will be made to have a complimentary shuttle from The Brown Hotel take you from the hotel to Norton Children’s Hospital for your interview as well as drive you back to the hotel after your interview has ended. Additionally, if you fly, you may use The Brown Hotel’s complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport.

Norton Children’s Hospital is in downtown Louisville at 231 East Chestnut Street. You may park in Norton Children’s Hospital’s parking garage, located north of the hospital on Abraham Flexner Way (the garage is attached to the hospital). The Office of Medical Education in the Department of Pediatrics will validate your parking ticket. Map
