The interview process includes a day with ample opportunity to interact with other residents and attending staff. The final selection and ranking is an open process conducted by attending staff as well as residents at all levels. Residents are selected from around the country, lending diversity and contrast to the program, and are selected wholly on their individual merit. The final rank list is sent to the NRMP for their matching process.

All first-year residents must complete a one-week orientation prior to the commencement of the residency. GENESIS, a nationally recognized new-resident orientation program, helps residents become familiar with their new environment and responsibilities. The program includes didactic lectures, hands-on simulation labs as well as surgical workshops. This provides an opportunity for new residents to meet informally with faculty and residents already in the program. The week concludes with department and Hospital orientations.
