B. The Interview

Once we receive your completed application, we will be in touch with you within two weeks. If you are invited for an interview, we will do our best to provide options for the interview date. We encourage you to interview early.

  1. The Interview: All Tulane interviews are held on Fridays. The interview day begins on Friday morning and includes lunch with our fellows. The day generally ends mid-afternoon. Many applicants choose to stay Friday and Saturday night in order to see, enjoy and pass a little time in the Big Easy. Odds are, there will be a festival on the weekend you interview (there are 412 festivals in New Orleans per year), so there will be more than enough to do and enjoy if you choose to stay the weekend in New Orleans.
  2. What to Expect on the Interview Day: Your interview will include one-on-one interviews faculty members. You'll also attend Child Psychiatry Grand Rounds. You'll have plenty of time to interact with our awesome fellows. It is sure to give you a great overview of our program here at Tulane.
