Our MD/PhD interview day is organized to introduce you to both the opportunities at the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine and the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. Interview Day begins at 8 a.m. and ends after 4:30 p.m.
Every interviewee has two formal one-on-one interviews with members of our faculty in the morning. Following interviews, applicants hear from a variety of representatives from our school, see videos about Northwell Health, and tour with medical students. Applicants have lunch with first and second year MD/PhD students. After lunch, applicants travel to the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, where they meet with 2-3 researchers (based on their area of research interest) and tour the research facilities. Applicants also have the opportunity to meet current MD/PhD students during their visit at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.
We encourage applicants to learn more about our hands-on curriculum prior to your interview day.
