POST-INTERVIEW COMMUNICATION

We have adopted the recommendations of both the AAMC and Academic Alliance of Internal Medicine including the following regarding In-Person Visits: Without further evaluation of safeguards to maintain equity for applicants, AAIM recommends against in-person visits as part of the interview process, including in-person interviews, open houses, or program-sponsored second looks. Of note, applicants retain the option to visit cities, communities, and institutions on their own. 

The interview day is designed to provide you with a clear picture of our training program and includes multiple opportunities to ask questions of our residents, program leadership, and faculty. In the spirit of fairness to all applicants, post-interview communications or second look visits will not impact an applicant’s ranking. On interview day, applicants will be provided contact information for program representatives for questions that arise after the interview.  

The University of Utah Pediatric Residency Program requests that applicants do not send routine thank you notes or emails. Such communications will not routinely receive a reply. 

We understand the interview season can be expensive for applicants, in terms of both time and money. Second look visits are neither required nor encouraged.  

This policy is in alignment with the NRMP rules and Code of Conduct and the APDIM Statement on Post-Interview Communication and Second Visits (released June 2014).
