Interview Day Information For Applicants

Program Information and Overview for 2022-2023 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/Second Looks
5) Second Look events in person at HFH (tentatively planned) 

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.

During the interday we are sometimes able to arrange for you to speak with one of our subspecialty faculty in an area of interest of yours. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to attend  each interview day. If you would like to speak with one of our EM subspecialty faculty or residents, please fill out this form and they will reach out to you later in the season.

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

Virtual Hangouts and Second Looks

One of the most valuable aspects of our interview process is the opportunity for you to interact and meet our residents. We understand this is challenging in a virtual environment. We will be offering in-person second look events this season. All of these virtual and in-person events are offered soley for your benefit and there are not any expectations of attendance on our end. Attendance will not be kept and will not impact your position on the rank list in any way. We understand you many not be able to attend in-person for a variety of reasons. We will continue to offer virtual options to provide everyone an opportunity to meet our residents and ask them questions important to you.  Please only sign up for one of the dates so that we are able to accommodate everyone.  If you end up deciding to cancel your interview and signed up for an in-person or virtual second look, please let us know by email so that we can accommodate others who may also want that date. Please contact us if you are having difficulty scheduling a date that works for you, especially near the end of the interview season. We will make our best efforts to accommodate all interested applicants.
