Interviewing Applicants

Admissions1We know your GPA, your MCAT score and read about some of your experiences but we don't really know you yet. Our interview day has been structured to give you the opportunity to show us more about who you are and to learn more about you beyond your resume and test scores.


The Interview Day

Please arrive between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. to check in and meet other applicants. At 8:00 a.m. we will begin with an orientation led by the Associate Dean for Admissions, Dr. Janice Gallant. We expect the day to end by 3:00 p.m.

During the day you will:

  • Meet with the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine (LCOM) at The University of Vermont faculty, staff and students
  • Participate in a circuit where you will speak with several interviewers
  • Have a chance to demonstrate your teamwork and communication skills
  • Learn about UVM's award-winning Vermont Integrated Curriculum
  • Tour the College and the University of Vermont Medical Center
  • Have lunch with current medical students compliments of our Medical Alumni Association.
  • Learn about UVM's clinical sites for Clerkship and the site selection process.  Following interview day, you will be asked to select a preferred clinical site.  Selection must be made within two weeks of your interview.  Admission to UVM LCOM is contingent upon selection of a clinical campus.

Most applicants interviewing for medical school choose to wear business attire, such as a business suit. We recommend you wear comfortable shoes as you will be moving around throughout the day.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about Interview Day. We look forward to meeting you!
