The Interview

Your interview at TTUHSC affords the best opportunity for us to show off our program and for you to meet our residents and faculty and see our facilities. The interview will allow you to become acquainted with our philosophy and practice for resident education and for you to determine if this philosophy meets your needs. We will arrange and pay for one night's lodging the night prior to your interview, if needed. Applicants are encouraged but not required to attend a dinner with residents the night before their interview if travel time permits, in your travel arrangements. Significant others/Spouses and children are welcome to come.

The Interview Day

We try to provide a comprehensive yet enjoyable interview day. You'll meet with many of our faculty, interact with current residents, and get to know our community. You'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions about our program.
We look forward to meeting you!
