2020 Otolaryngology Interview Offer Dates
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.
