VISITING MED STUDENTS
If I do a rotation at the University of Kentucky Emergency Department, does that guarantee that I will be offered an interview?
The University of Kentucky offers interviews in a rolling fashion. There are multiple factors that influence when applicants may hear from us. Our goal in 2016-17 is to make our first offers 10/20/16. We actively use our waiting list and based on cancellations, we will continue to make approximately 5-10 offers every week or two until the end of the season. Often, cancellations occur close to the end of the interview cycle, so we use this list and make offers well into January. Our tentative interview schedule is from early November through late January, on most Fridays.
Because interview slots are valuable to both the candidate and the residency, please be considerate to other students and do not hold slots at different programs for the same interview time.
Please feel free to contact our Program Coordinator if you have questions about our process we have not addressed here. Direct emails to the Program Directors are rarely helpful, as it unfairly circumvents the application system. If you feel there is key information that will be missed in your application, have your EM faculty advisor email one of us.
We review all of the nearly 1,000 applications and usually offer interviews to approximately 150 well-qualified candidates in addition to the UK and visiting students who have already rotated with us. Thank you for your interest.
Questions can be addressed to our Program Coordinator at [email protected] or by calling 859-323-5083.
