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!
