About the Host Program
The Host Program is taking on a new form for the 2020-2021 interview season. This year, the UVA Medical Alumni Association is moving towards making virtual connections between students and alumni. This will be done by phone calls, email, text messages or Zoom in order to keep everyone safe.
You may not need a place to stay during residency interviews this year, but you’ll definitely want to make connections in the cities you may call home next summer. The UVA Medical Alumni Association has recruited over 200 alumni to answer your questions about residency, life in their community and more. In addition to making connections based on location, we’re also offering the opportunity to connect with alumni by training program. This will allow you to get a feeling for the people and culture of the program from a trusted source.
“My host and his family were more than welcoming. I also really appreciated that he took time to discuss the residency program with me and his experience with it.”
