For the 2020-21 interview season, we are switching to a virtual interview process due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You will have virtual interviews with the Neurology Program Director and Associate Program Director as well as some of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Neurology faculty. All applicants will also be able to access information on the guaranteed preliminary year spot, which will be provided by the Department of Internal Medicine. You do not need to apply to their program separately as we will share your ERAS application with their office.

Match Communication Code of Conduct

We follow the NRMP guidelines for the Match process. We will not contact you but are happy to hear from you and to answer questions you may have that are not answered during the application and interview process.
