Pre-Interview Social

Welcome to interview season! We are very excited to be hosting such an exceptional group of applicants this year. As part of your introduction to the Temple program, we will be hosting an informal event the night before your interview (Sunday or Wednesday based on your scheduled interview day) in the evening at 8 pm at The Cambridge on 15th and South Street (this is in Center City). This event will give you an opportunity to meet some of our current residents in a relaxed, less formal setting. Dress is casual. We hope that you are able to join us for some drinks and delicious appetizers (please note, full dinner will not be provided).

Please RSVP to TUHEDCHIEFS@gmail.com at least a few nights before the gathering so we know who to expect!

Accommodations, Transportation and Parking

The Graduate Medical Education program website has an array of useful information regarding Temple University Hospital. Here you can find hotel information; a map and a parking pass for your convenience. For a budget hosting option you may want to look into http://www.swapandsnooze.com/.

Temple is easily accessible by Public transportation– most applicants will be traveling from Center City. We recommend taking the Broad Street Line (non-Express) to Allegheny Station and then walking two blocks north to Jones Hall. If you are traveling from elsewhere, please refer to https://www.google.com/maps or http://www.septa.org/ for tailored directions!

Interview Day

We make every effort to respect your time and travel needs on interview day with a compact, yet thoughtful schedule.  Please arrive at room 1026 on the 10th floor of Jones Hall 10 minutes early for the interview day (around 7:20 a.m.). Note that there is a single afternoon interview day on November the 20th–if this is your date, we will contact you with more specific info. Interview days begin with an introduction from the program leadership followed by interviews and tours in the morning.  We conclude with an applicant lunch–an opportunity to spend time with our residents who can candidly share their experiences about the residency.  We anticipate the day completing at 1:30 p.m. to give you an opportunity to maximize your travel plans.  If you would like to schedule time to observe in the ED, please contact us beforehand and we will make every effort to accommodate your request.  We look forward to having you join our Temple family for an unforgettable experience!
