2020 Otolaryngology Interview Offer Dates

In keeping with prior years’ recommendations for a standardized 3 week “interview offer window”, OPDO is encouraging all programs to extend interviews between November 9 to November 30, 2020.  Given the likely increase in number of applications this year, the delayed end date should allow programs adequate time for review.

This practice was first implemented so that applicants could anticipate receiving all offers during a set time period to plan travel accordingly and to reduce potential interview hoarding and cancellations. This year, travel coordination will not be a concern and we can presume possible over interviewing and fewer cancellations. Nevertheless, the applicants will know to expect offers within this compressed timeframe and hopefully reduce their anxiety levels surrounding this process.  

Lastly, the standardized letter of recommendation for medical student applicants to otolaryngology residency is still strongly encouraged. Please see link below.
