Interviews

Your secondary application will be reviewed independently by the Medical School and the MSTP. If chosen for an MSTP interview, you will be invited to visit San Francisco for one day of medical school interviews and orientation, followed by a second day of interviews with the MSTP. Our MSTP interview process includes individual meetings with two faculty from our MSTP Council and with two other graduate faculty whose research interests are similar to your own. You will be asked to submit a list of 10 graduate faculty with whom you are interested in meeting while you are here. You will also meet with our Administrative Director and with current MSTP students, who will be happy to answer your questions about the MSTP and about life in San Francisco.
