Dear APDS Members:
The Association of Program Directors in Surgery is aware of the disruption that the Coronavirus outbreak has had on the interview process of many fellowship applications. While individual programs and specialty societies ultimately control the fellowship application cycle, we would ask that they consider alternative ways to conduct the interview process for this year’s interviews. This unexpected disruption may allow the surgical education world to trial suitable alternatives to in-person interviews that may be beneficial for years to come, both in terms of cost and time.
