Next Step/Interview

Once we receive your completed ERAS application, we will contact you to set an interview date.

  • Your interview at TTUHSC affords the best opportunity for us to show you our program and for you to meet our residents, fellows, and faculty and see our facilities. The interview will allow you to become acquainted with our philosophy and practice for resident, fellow, and medical student education and for you to determine if this philosophy meets your needs.
  • We try to provide a comprehensive yet enjoyable Interview Day. You will meet with our faculty, interact with current residents and fellows and get to know our community. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions about our program. 

At this time we are unable to provide any accommodations for the interview day.
We look forward to meeting you!
