General Surgery Residency

Interview Process Outline

For interview dates of December 18 & January 15, we have Grand Rounds in 208 Light Hall from 7:00 a.m. to 7:50 a.m. 

 

On the night before each interview day, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., there will be a gathering of Candidates and Residents.  You can chat with the Residents and get the scoop to supplement the program presentation you will hear the following morning. Your guests and/or children are welcome.  If you arrive later than 5:00 p.m., it is still acceptable to join us for the gathering. 

 
On interview day there will be breakfast snacks, fruit, and coffee ready for you when you arrive.  Dr. Terhune likes to begin the program promptly.  The parking garages are an approximate five minute walk from the interview sites and Vanderbilt is a big place.  If you get lost on campus, it is fine to call us for directions/instructions.  The welcomes, program presentation, and interviews will commence at 7:30 a.m.  The interview process, which includes a luncheon, will conclude by 2:30 p.m.
