We want applicants who are invited for interview to find their day at UNC as informative as possible. We view this as an opportunity for you to learn more about our program and for us to learn more about you.

Our interview day allows applicants to experience the life of a UNC School of Medicine student not only through the interviews themselves but also by experiencing the beauty of UNC’s campus and the different facilities the School of Medicine has to offer. You will be walking throughout the campus on the interview day. For that reason, we recommend you WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES, TRAVEL LIGHTLY, and BRING AN UMBRELLA in the event of rain.

You will have 1 TRADITIONAL ONE-ON-ONE INTERVIEW with a representative from the School of Medicine community. You will also participate in 5 MMI-STYLE SESSIONS. You will be evaluated while also experiencing how our students learn–through mentorship, group activities, simulated patient interactions, and feedback. The activities are all taken from our educational programs.

We pride ourselves on our diverse community, family-like atmosphere, and innovative educational programs. This is what we hope you will see when you visit us and Experience UNC!

Interviews are conducted on Fridays and Mondays at our Central Campus in Chapel Hill, NC. Applicants selected for an interview will be sent a sign-up link to choose their interview date from a list of available days and times. There are AM and PM sessions available. If you are planning airline travel after your interview day, please do not schedule a flight before 3:00pm for those interviewing in the AM session and 6:00pm for those interviewing in the PM session.
