Frequently Asked Questions

One hour. We ask you questions in the first half-hour and provide feedback in the second half.

Once you sign up, you will select your Physician Advisor and schedule your session. You will also receive an email link to schedule a session if you need to select a day and time later.

Yes! Once you sign up for interview prep, we will send you instructions on how you can record the session.

First, you need to decide which type of residency program you want to go into. You can go into a primary care residency, which is a general practice residency, or you can go into a subspecialty residency, which is a residency in a specific field. You can also look into the location of the residency program. You may want to look into programs in certain states or cities because they may have better job opportunities. Matching into residency is really critical.
