Interviews and The Match


Residency Interviews

2018-2019 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. The Office of Medical Education (OME) is located in the Children's Hospital Foundation Building, 601 South Floyd Street, Suite 200, at the opposite corner of Floyd & Chestnut from Norton Children's Hospital. If you are not staying at the Brown Hotel, you may park in the Norton Pavilion Parking Garage (map). OME will validate your parking.
