Neurology Program Interviews

Neurology Residency interviews are granted after a completed ERAS application is reviewed by the Residency Selection Committee. All applications are reviewed in their entirety; we do not use specific USMLE scores to screen applications.

If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by Gina Murray, the neurology training program administrator, using Interview Broker, an online scheduling system. You will be able to schedule your own interview using this website.

We encourage you to submit your application early as our interview slots are limited. Our deadline for receiving applications from ERAS will be October 2022. Interviews will be conducted virtually through a platform such as Zoom.

Only applications entered through ERAS will be considered.


If You Are Selected for an Interview

The night before your interview, you will be invited to attend our Interesting Case Conference (5:00-6:00 p.m.) with our residents and some of the faculty. This conference is one of our core conferences and your attendance will enable you to enjoy part of what makes neurology fun: discussing interesting and unique neurological cases to help patients and colleagues. Immediately following, we encourage you to join us for an informal discussion about our training program with current residents. 

The interview day includes attendance at Duke Neurology Grand Rounds, short interviews with faculty members and a virtual tour of Duke University Hospital’s campus. Prior to the interview session, Residency Program Director, Chris Eckstein, MD, will provide an overview of Duke Neurology including clinical specialties, research opportunities, and fellowships. You will also receive information regarding the internal medicine preliminary year at Duke. 

The interview day typically lasts the duration of a half day, either from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. or 12:30p.m. to 3:30p.m. with an 8:00a.m. - 9:00a.m. Neuroscience Grand Rounds to start the day.
