2017/2018 Residency Interview Information

For academic year 2018-2019, there are six PGY 1 adult neurology positions and one PGY 1 child neurology position.  Applications are accepted through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). All candidates are considered and invitations for interviews are extended based upon personal statements, medical school transcript, research, publications, United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) scores (Step 1 and Step 2), and letters of recommendation.

If you are selected for an interview, expect to arrive the afternoon before your scheduled date. Hotel arrangements will be coordinated on your behalf at the popular 21C Museum Hotel (see pictures above). That evening, you will dine with our current residents at a local restaurant.  This is an ideal opportunity to become acquainted with one another and relax a bit before your big day.

On the day of your interview, candidates will arrive at the KY Clinic by 7 am for breakfast and paperwork. Next you will hear a program overview given by the Department Chair and Program Director. This is the department's opportunity to highlight our top-notch training program and new hospital facilities. Immediately following is the opportunity to observe our Grand Rounds Conference. The remainder of the day will be split between interview sessions and a hospital tour. Lunch is provided and all faculty and residents are invited to attend. During this time, you will have an opportunity to ask questions in an informal setting. Your day will conclude approximately at 5 pm. Departing transportation will be the candidates' responsibility following the interviews.

Due to the volume of applications, status updates are difficult to manage. Please be assured that all applications are under review and should you be selected to interview you will receive an email from the program director. Voice messages and emails will not be returned.
