2019 Otolaryngology Interview Offer Dates
In order to try to improve the Otolaryngology resident interview offer process, OPDO implemented a standardized 3 week “interview offer window” five years ago. This year, programs are encouraged to offer interviews between October 19 and November 9.
Implementing a standard “interview offer window” provides applicants an opportunity to anticipate when offers will arrive and plan their interviews accordingly. We expect candidates that have received all offers during this set time period are less likely to "hold" an interview spot or cancel later in the season.
Please let us know if your program is unable to comply with this request.
In addition, the standardized letter of recommendation for medical student applicants to Otolaryngology residency is still strongly encouraged. It can be found here.
