All eight Adult Neurology Residency positions include a preliminary year in internal medicine at the University of Utah. Members of the resident recruitment committee review all applications. Virtual interviews will begin in November and conclude in January, and interview days will be on Wednesdays and Fridays.

At the end of each interview day, the interviewers complete a standard evaluation form for each applicant that they interview. The results are then tallied and will then form the basis of our rank order list. Our selection committee maintains strict compliance with the rules of the match throughout the process.
