Virtual Interviewing Information for the 2020-2021 Interview Season

Due to the need for virtual interviews, our interview day will be a bit different this year! We are working hard to ensure that you will still have an informative, interactive and enjoyable time with us learning about our program.

The interview day will be held entirely virtually. We start with a welcome and program overview with our program director, Bret Burlingame, D.O. After meeting Dr. Burlingame, you will have individual virtual interviews.
