This past year, approximately 110 completed applications were received and 20 applicants were invited to interview for our four positions. Upon review of your application, you will be contacted either by Dr. Bach or Phyllis Velez if an invitation to interview is extended to you. The interview process includes a gathering on Wednesday evening, allowing you to meet the faculty and current fellows in a social setting. Thursday is a full day with one-on-one interviews with the faculty, time for interaction with the current fellows as well as tour of the facilities. Fellows are selected on the basis of their academic accomplishments, letters of recommendation and personal character.
