The information on this page is meant assist you in understanding the Interview Experience and to help you begin to understand what it is like to train and live in the Mile High City. Your interview will involve three separate experiences over two days, including the Interview Experience, Resident Dinner Experience, and Educational Conference Experience. All three experiences will be conducted virtually using Zoom.
Your half day, virtual Interview Experience will begin with a thirty-minute Departmental and Residency Program Leadership Introduction to allow you to meet and hear from the leaders in our department and our educational programs. Next, you will connect with one of our chief residents for an interactive, one-hour session highlighting our storied history in the specialty of Emergency Medicine and the essential information to understand the nuts and bolts of our residency program. Over the next two hours, you will have a total of three fifteen-minute interviews (with a resident, an associate program director, and another faculty member) and one ten-minute interview with our program director, Bonnie Kaplan. In-between your interviews, you will be in a virtual waiting room for conversation and questions with our current residents.
Residency Dinner Experience
Your ninety-minute, virtual Resident Dinner Experience will allow you to connect and converse with residents in a causal and relaxed atmosphere. Food will be provided by the residency program for everyone in attendance in order to support the camaraderie and community that is essential for the functioning of our residency program. Our goal for this dinner experience is two-fold. First, to provide you with a glimpse into the lives of our residents so as to help you better understand what life might be like in residency in Denver. Second, to help us better understand you as an individual and your hopes and dreams for life in a residency program.
Educational Conference Experience
Your half-day, virtual Educational Conference Experience provides you with a first-hand look at our Wednesday educational sessions. Showcasing great educational cases, engaging participant discussion and valuable lessons learned, our ninety-minute Morbidity and Mortality(M&M) Conference has kicked off our Wednesday educational sessions for almost forty years. M&M Conference is followed by various educational activities that include resident and faculty presentations, small group breakouts, and interactive workshops. We encourage you to participate in our educational activities to the extent that you feel comfortable.
