Interview Dates by Region
The map below shows the distribution of states by region; East, Midwest and Southwest. (The states that do not have accredited sports medicine programs are blacked out). The corresponding grid provides the number of programs in each region, as well as the proposed interview dates.
1. Divide the country into three regions, with each region designated a window for interviews.
2. Programs in close proximity in each region are encouraged to coordinate interview dates.
3. Programs issue interview invitations, no earlier than December 1.
4. Interviewing during designated time frame is encouraged – not mandatory.
Programs may interview military candidates “off cycle” when there is a bonafide overseas deployment that would otherwise negate the applicants ability to participate in the regularly scheduled cycle of interviews.
