Durant Family Medicine Clinic

INTERVIEW PROCESS:

Prospective candidates may apply to the program at any time.  After proper application by the prospective candidate, the candidate will be notified and an interview will be scheduled, usually during November, December and January.  During the interview, the prospective candidate will meet with at least three (3) members of the Medical Education Committee.


The interviewing members will review the application, will interview the candidate appropriately in conjunction with interview standards, and will complete a Prospective Candidate Evaluation, and arrive at a consensus provided there is no dissenting opinion among the interviewers.  If there is no consensus, the decision for acceptance will go to the entire Medical Education Committee for open discussion and a vote.


If the Director of Medical Education is the person expressing concern with regard to an applicant, the applicant may still be approved but will require a unanimous vote by the remainder of the Medical Education Committee.

 

Selection dates and notification of PGY-1 resident candidates are in accordance with AOA regulations.  Our program will not impose requirements that supersede those of the AOA.  Applicants shall be considered for residency without regard to race, color, age, sex, religion, creed, national origin and/or disability.
