The next day (your interview day), a current resident will meet you in the hospital lobby at am to guide you on a tour of our facilities.
At 9am, the Program Director(s) will give a brief welcome and presentation of our program.
Each interview is approximately 45 minutes in length.
After morning interviews, lunch will be provided; all current residents are invited to stop by to answer any questions applicants may have.
The Upstate interview day and overall interview experience was a nice break from the daily stress of being a medical student and the tension of the residency interview process.
The superb organization of the itinerary and the friendliness of the residents and faculty members allowed for a very relaxing experience.
The interview day felt like an opportunity to learn about the program and I appreciated that everyone was so invested in the interviewees.
As senior residents, we can appreciate that the interest in the integrate person, the encouragement of independent thought, and the concern for the health and well being of trainees are amongst the core values of our department.
I’m still not sure if that’s actually a fact, but it certainly motivated me to get started.These values are the main drivers of change within the department.We hope that you will consider applying to our residency training program and we wish you the best of luck during this interview season and the entirety of your career as a psychiatrist!Some forms of meditation may use chants, music or visuals. It’s important to look at these thoughts almost like an outsider and place no judgement over what they mean or the fact that you’re not meditating Just let them float by.
It’s this sense of being so connected to your body while disconnecting from your thoughts that makes meditation so special.One is thinking about work, another about lunch, a third about one thing I said last night to someone and why I shouldn’t have said another.
