Also insane amounts of pathology that defy textbooks as these patients don’t have primary care for 20+ years despite numerous comorbidities due to poverty and lack of access."

Interviews will again be conducted virtually (due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic) on Tuesdays anWednesdays and Fridays from late October through January. In short, the interview day consists of a presentation, three faculty interviews, and a resident-run interview.
