All applicants must fulfill our Resident & Fellow Appointment Requirements. In addition, you’ll need:

Interviews take place from early November through mid-January, on Tuesdays and Fridays.
The evening before your interview, you’ll have the option to join some of our residents and faculty for a night out in Northampton. You’ll enjoy a taste of the local scene and learn about life as a Baystate Medical Center resident in a relaxed, informal setting. We’re delighted to show you how good life can be here.
The interview process also includes lunch with the current residents and a resident-guided tour of the Emergency Department.
