Long before the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Thomas Mohr, DO, and Marsha Sellner, BS, experimented with video interviews for the residency application and selection process. Now that programs have to utilize video interviews, the presenters will discuss how they employed video conference technology and automated scheduling software for medical students applying to their residency programs. The presenters will discuss the pros and cons of this approach and allow for open discussion with participants.
Webinar participants will review:
-Rationale for using video interviews
-Pros and cons for video interviews
-Types of video interviews
-Perspectives from the Texas Institute for Graduate Medical Education and Research (TIGMER) experience
-Video interviews in a pandemic
