Interviewing for the Program

Interviews and Dates

Neurology Residency Program interviews are granted after a completed ERAS application is reviewed by the Residency Selection Committee. 

Gina Murray, the neurology training programs administrator, will contact you via ERAS so please make sure you check the ERAS post office for the status of your application.

We encourage you to submit your application early as our interview slots are limited. Interviews will be held on Wednesdays in the fall of 2017.


What to expect during interview day

The night before your interview, you will be invited to attend our Interesting Case Conference with our residents and some of the faculty. This is one of our core conferences, and your attendance will enable you to enjoy part of what makes neurology fun: trying to figure neurological cases out to best help patients and colleagues.

Immediately afterward, you are invited to have dinner with some of our residents at a local restaurant. This will allow you to talk with our residents in an informal setting. This dinner is an ideal opportunity to learn about our program, meet your future team, and explore downtown Durham. Attendance is highly encouraged.

The interview day includes attendance at our Neuroscience Grand Rounds, short interviews with faculty members, a tour of Duke University Hospital and other areas of interest, and lunch with the residents and faculty. In the afternoon, Residency Program Director Saurabh Sinha, MD, PhD, will review the Duke Neurology including clinical specialties, research opportunities, and fellowships. A faculty member from the Department of Medicine will also provide a detailed overview of the first year of the PGY-1 residency. The interview day typically lasts from 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., but times are subject to change.


The Department will provide hotel accommodations for resident candidates for the night before the residents; candidates will receive more information from Gina Murray after confirmation of their selection. Candidates who wish to stay more than one night are welcome to do so but must pay for any additional time.
