The interview day begins at 7:15 a.m. at Children’s Hospital Colorado. A Chief Resident will meet the applicants at the hospital main entrance, accompanying you to breakfast and Morning Report, which is attended by housestaff, Program Directors, and faculty. Afterwards, a member of our Resident Selection Committee will provide an informational presentation about our Program, followed by a question and answer session with our Program Directors and Chiefs.
After a quick break, applicants have two separate interviews with faculty. The program attempts to pair applicants and faculty who have common interests, so invited applicants are encouraged to inform the staff of any specific career plans when scheduling your interview day. After interviewing, the day continues with a tour of Children’s Colorado led by our residents, followed by lunch with housestaff, allowing ample time for applicants to talk to residents about the program and resident life.
We then provide transportation to Denver Health to meet our third Chief Resident, key faculty, and housestaff on rotation there. There are no additional interviews held at Denver Health, but applicants find the tour extremely helpful and worth their time. The day ends at Denver Health at approximately 2:30 p.m., but transportation is provided back to Children’s Colorado, arriving at approximately 3:00 p.m. For travel purposes, Denver International Airport is about a 20 minute drive from Children’s Hospital Colorado, and 45 minutes from Denver Health.
