Given the need for all of us to support the nation’s public health efforts, the AAMC strongly encourages medical school and teaching hospital faculty to conduct all interviews with potential students, residents, and faculty in a virtual setting – either by phone or through video conferencing.

The academic medicine community is not alone in facing this challenge. LinkedIn, Google, Facebook, and Amazon have all halted on-site job interviews indefinitely and multiple resources exist for conducting virtual assessments. The AAMC will continue working with the Group on Resident Affairs, Group on Faculty Affairs, Group on Student Affairs, and others to collate and post resources as they become available.
