APPLICATION PROCESS

Tulane accepts applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Forms are returned along with the appropriate supporting paperwork, such as Dean's transcripts and letter, recommendation letters, research projects, personal statement, curriculum vitae, etc.

The Program Director and/or his designee reviews all of the completed applications and ranks them on what is considered to be a "merit listing" based on the application process.

Interviews will be held on the following days:

Saturday, October 18, 2014, 8:00am -  2:00pm

Wednesday, November 5, 2014, 1:00pm - 6:00pm

 
This gives the resident applicant every opportunity to interact with the majority of faculty and staff in an uninterrupted fashion.

During the interview process, the applicant is given a guided tour through the Urology Department, Health Sciences Center, and adjoining hospitals. All pertinent questions and concerns are addressed in a brief presentation prior to the individual interviews.



INTERVIEW PROCESS

The interview process is designed so that there is a one-on-one interaction, in most instances, with each faculty member. This interview process provides a subjective and objective evaluation of the applicant. Also, the applicant is given every opportunity to investigate the status of the department.

During the course of the interview process, the applicants meet separately with the present complement of urology residents and get a detailed tour of our physical facilities (hospitals, clinics, specialty urology areas, etc.). The Chief Residents play an active role in the interview process and provides useful feedback.

Well over 200 completed applications are received each year. Of those, approximately 25 resident applicants are interviewed annually.

At the end of each interview day, the faculty meets and scores these resident applicants in writing on a standardized evaluation form. These applicants are then placed on a numerical ranking list.

In the month of December, once all the resident interviews have been completed, the entire faculty meets and reviews the entire list of resident applicants who have been ranked. Final adjustments are made prior to sending our rank list to the American Urological Association for Match Day. Special consideration is given to resident applicants who have shown evidence of interest in urology in the form of research, electives, paper presentations or publications, AOA status, etc. These candidates are ranked and the list submitted for the residency match in January.
