Interviews are required for our 16 categorical internal medicine and our 6 preliminary medicine positions. Interviews typically begin in late October and conclude by late December. We host up to 8 applicants per day.

On the evening before the interview day residents host applicants and their guests for an informal dinner. This is a great opportunity to learn more about our program, Roanoke, Va., and potential future colleagues. Please contact Ginger Cook, Internal Medicine Residency Coordinator, if you wish to attend the informal dinner (

Interview Day Instructions

Please arrive in the lobby at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital no later than 7:15 a.m. on the day of the interview. A resident will meet applicants and escort them to the Internal Medicine Morning Report Conference (7:45 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.). Following report there will then be a group overview of our program with the Program Director, followed by individual interviews with two members of the faculty.

We will then provide a tour of the hospital, an informal lunch with a few residents, and conclude with, a brief individual exit interview with the Program Director. The interview day will end by approximately 2 p.m. In addition, visits can be arranged to the Carilion Clinic Riverside 3 facility (a continuity clinic site) and/or a trip to the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Salem, VA.
