The Interview

Interviews are conducted on Thursdays and Fridays from November through mid-January.

Interviews are by invitation only. We only invite the number of available interview spots. If you are invited for an interview, you will have 72 hours to respond. You may have options for your interview date. We encourage you to interview early.

All Tulane interviews are two-day virtual interviews, occurring on Thursday and Friday. The Thursday runs from 8am to 4pm CST, with an evening social event with triple board residents starting at 7pm CST. The Friday schedule runs from noon to 5pm CST, offering you the opportunity to sleep in after a long day. There are many breaks scheduled throughout both days to minimize fatigue.

What to Expect on the Interview Day: You will be interviewed by faculty and residents from all three components: pediatrics, general and child and adolescent psychiatry. You'll attend Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Grand Rounds. You'll have plenty of time to interact with not only our awesome Triple Board residents, but also categorical residents from the three programs. It is sure to give you a great overview of our program here at Tulane.
