Virtual Interview Process

The UAB Pediatric and Combined Residency Programs recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically affected the 2022-2023 residency application cycle. In accordance with recommendations from the AAMC, NRMP, and APPD, we will be conducting all interviews virtually via Zoom.

Interview Dates
Interviews will be scheduled on weekdays during the months of November, December, and January. The interview day will start at 8:00 a.m. CST and end around 12:30 p.m CST. 

Social Hour
The evening prior to each interview day, there will be an optional social hour with current residents via Zoom from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. CST.

Interview Day
Throughout the virtual interview day, interview with program directors/chief residents and faculty, tour our facilities, and meet some of our fantastic residents. While we wish we could host applicants in our city and meet you in person, we very much look forward to getting to know you virtually and showing you our facilities, our city, and most importantly our people!
