2023 Interview Dates:
Our program will be conducting all interviews virtually, as advised by our governing bodies. We will be participating in Supplemental ERAS application. Our goal is to ensure we offer interviews to candidates interested in a strong community program with university affiliations. We will be making this supplement optional for candidates and hope it allows those with strong interest to indicate so. Second look can be arranged to help candidates make their decision for a program. It will not involve an interview or change your position on our rank list.

Signaling Tips:

  • There is no need to signal us if you completed a Acting Intership with us.
  • Remember sending more than one token to a program does not help - we will only see it as one.
