The Interview Day: What to Expect

The goals of the interview process are for applicants and members of the Washington University School of Medicine community to get to know each other. The process is designed to bring applicants into contact with as many of our current students and faculty as feasible within a short period of time. Before the interview, think about what you want to know about the School so that when you visit you can be sure your questions are answered.

Also be sure to look up the person with whom you will interview on the Admissions Committee Bios page.
