Mock Residency Interviewer Volunteers Needed

Have you gone through the matching process and want to help others get matched? Do you have knowledge that can help these candidates succeed in the matching process?

The AMA International Medical Graduates Section is seeking physicians and residents/fellows as volunteer interviewers in its Mock Residency Interview Program.

By becoming a volunteer interviewer this fall/winter you can make an impact on the candidates' outlook on themselves as applicants. The AMA needs as many physician and resident/fellow volunteers as possible to build a large pool of interviewers and match the most medical graduates through the program. Volunteer interviewers may conduct their mock interviews in person, via Skype, or via telephone--whichever is most convenient for the interviewer and the prospective resident.

Guidelines and expectations, along with sample questions and interview instructions, will be emailed to both the volunteer interviewer and the interviewee prior to the interview.

If you are interested in conducting a mock residency interview with a prospective resident, register online for the Mock Residency Interview Program. Please email Stephanie Groeninger or call her at (312) 464-5041 with any questions you may have.

If you are a medical graduate who will be interviewing for the 2015 match process, the AMA will be accepting a limited number of requests beginning Sept. 1 through Nov. 30. Priority will be given to current AMA members and you will be asked to confirm your scheduled interview prior to matching you with an interviewer. Beginning Sept. 1, please contact Stephanie Groeninger at the contact information listed above.
