The interview is a very important part of the application process as it allows the MD Admissions Committee to assess an applicant's compassion and dedication to the field of medicine.

It also provides interviewers an opportunity to examine your motivation, sensitivity, cultural awareness and interpersonal skills. The interview helps the MD Admissions Committee see from your lens, the understanding of a physician's role and their contribution to health and wellness.

MD Interviews at EVMS

EVMS interviews applicants for the MD program on Wednesdays and Fridays beginning in September and ending in March.

Due to COVID-19 all interviews this cycle will be held virtually. EVMS uses BlueJeans for video conferencing. BlueJeans provides an interoperable cloud-based video conferencing service that connects participants across a wide range of devices and conferencing platforms.

Applicants will be provided a BlueJeans link that will correspond to their interviewers on the designated day and time of their interview. This platform is versatile. If a student/interviewer is unable to log in using the link provided, they can call into the interview with the telephone number, meeting ID and passcode that will also be provided for each video conference. Details will be included in all interview confirmations.

All interviews begin at 2 p.m. and are scheduled in 45 minute increments: 2 p.m., 2:45 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Each Wednesday during the interview season, interviewees scheduled during their designated week -- whether it be on a Wednesday or Friday -- will have an opportunity for a face-to-face engagement with members from the EVMS academic enterprise community via ZOOM.

This may include, but not be limited to the Assistant Vice Dean of Admissions and Enrollment, Director of Admissions, Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion, Assistant Director of Diversity, Assistant Vice Dean of Student Affairs, Director of Financial Aid and/or currently enrolled EVMS MD students. Details will be included in all interview confirmations.
