Virtual Interviewing: Tips and Strategies

Date: Thursday, October 29, 2020

Time: 12:00 PM To 1:00 PM

Location: VIA ZOOM

Event Description:

Among the numerous rapid changes in medical education as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic is the shift this year to virtual interviews for medical students applying to residency programs. While there are a number of resources that have emerged to prepare medical student applicants for their virtual interviews, faculty also need assistance in preparing to engage in a virtual interview environment. This workshop reviews best practices and recommendations to support faculty in their new roles as virtual interviewers.

After taking this workshop, participants will:

•Describe advantages and disadvantages of virtual vs. face-to-face (FTF) interviewing.

•Identify challenges to successful virtual interviewing, including sources of unconscious bias that are specific to interviews in the virtual environment.

•Learn strategies and "pearls" for effective virtual interviewing.

Target Audience:

Rachel J. Katz, M.D.
