Interview Day Information For Applicants

Program Information and Overview for 2021-2022 Interview Season

It is important to us that you learn about our program and are able to make an informed decision about training in Emergency Medicine at Henry Ford Hospital.  All of our interviews will again be conducted virtually this year. You will receive an email about 1 week prior to your interview date with the specific information for your interview day. In order to give you as much information as early as possible, we have provided detailed and updated information on this website.  We have also prepared videos and handouts which we hope you will review prior to the interview day.  During this process, there will be multiple opportunities to ask questions important to you: 

1) Welcome session with the program director
2) Interviews with faculty
3) Presentation and questions with the residents during the interview day
4) Virtual Hangouts with the residents  

In the meantime, we hope these pages will help you learn more about our program prior to interviewing, so that we can answer any additional questions you may have during our time together. We can’t wait to meet you and learn more about you! While we are all disappointed that we can’t speak in person, we hope to be able to provide a virtual experience that will help you get to know us on a more personal level and showcase the world class training that leaves our residents #BuiltFordEMTough.

You can access all the videos in one central location here.
