We recognize how challenging it will be this year to form the kinds of relationships with the residents and faculty of the BWH Anesthesiology that occur during traditional in-person interview days. We are currently hard at work re-imagining and planning these days to ensure we can showcase our residents and residency to you and vice versa!

We will continue our long tradition of deep, holistic reviews of residency applications that emphasize understanding who you are as a future anesthesiologist and person. We do not require USMLE Step 2 scores for our review and we understand that this year it may not be possible to obtain a letter of recommendation from an anesthesiology rotation, to complete all the electives you wish before applying, or even complete a medicine sub internship, or to undertake any visiting rotations. That will not be a problem for us.

We issue interview invitations when our review is complete, but because we review each application in depth and write a detailed summary of each applicant, our reviews take longer than most other programs. We apologize for this, but we believe that reviewing the complete application and not using filters to exclude applicants is the fairest approach and allows us to identify the best applicants. Also, because we do not review applications in a systematic order some applications do not get reviewed until the end of the reading period and some applicants will receive interview invitations before others. Please note that we expect to complete our review and issue all interview invitations by mid October. You will hear from us one way or the other by then.
