2021 Residency Interview Process

The University of Arkansas will be conducting online interviews for the 2021-2022 match. Interviews are held on Thursdays, November through February.  We know there is a level of benefit from in person interactions, and while not all interactions can be replicated in a online environment, we are working  to provide an optimal virtual experience that will allow candidates to maximize their remote interactions with our faculty and residents.

Each candidate will meet with the Program Director and five members of our resident selection committee. There will be a Q&A session with the Chief Residents, followed by a Q&A with the residents.
