Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine

MD Program Admissions Home

Interview Day

The interview day is organized to introduce prospective students to the many opportunities available at the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine.  The Interview day will start at 8:00 a.m. and end by 1:30 p.m.

Each interviewee will have two formal one-on-one interviews with members of our faculty.  Representatives from the Offices of Admissions, Student Affairs, and Student Finance will discuss relevant topics and help applicants better understand our curriculum, the admissions process, and the roles played by each office.  Interviewees will tour the School of Medicine Building on Hofstra University's campus and have lunch with first- and second-year students.  At the end of the interview day, the goal is for interviewees to experience what makes the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine special.  Through meeting and interacting with faculty, students, and administrators, we hope applicants leave with a comprehensive understanding of what it is like to be a student here at the School of Medicine.   

We encourage applicants to learn more about the School of Medicine's hands-on curriculum prior to the interview day.
