You will be notified via email if you are selected for an interview.  The email will contain detailed instructions for scheduling your interview.   

Please do not contact the Program Office to inquire about the status of your application.  We are unable to provide specific information on individual applications.  

  • Time to meet our current residents

One of the most popular parts of your interview is a casual dinner at a restaurant the evening before your interview day. This is an opportunity to talk informally with our present house staff. Transportation will be provided from the hotel. Plan to be picked up at the hotel lobby at 6:30 pm and returned at 9:30 pm. I hope you will be able to arrive in Rochester early enough to attend this.

If you are driving and arrive later than 6:30 pm and would still like to attend the dinner, we will send you directions to the restaurant. If you arrive late to the Holiday Inn Express, but do not have transportation, inquire at the front desk.

  • Accommodations

The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Rochester General Hospital will pay for one night’s accommodation at the following hotel:

Holiday Inn Express
2200 Goodman Street
Rochester NY 14609

Blocks of rooms have been reserved at our expense for the night prior to your interview. You must make a reservation with your credit card, telling them that you are with the Rochester General Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program. When you check in your credit card will not be charged, **however, if you do not show up and cancel your reservation 72 hours in advance, you will be charged the hotel fee.** Please make your reservation early. The Holiday Inn Express will not guarantee a room immediately before your interview date.

When you call the hotel at 585-342-0430 to make your reservation. Be sure to tell them that you are with the Rochester General Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program.

If you need to cancel your interview, please contact the program office at (585) 922-4365 and the hotel to cancel the reservation and avoid charges.

  • Information Folder

When you check in at the hotel, you will be given a folder of information from our program. Details for your visit including the arrangements for the evening dinner and the pick-up times for transportation to the hospital for your interview day will be included. If you do not stay at the hotel, your folder will be given to you when you arrive at your interview. The interview day itinerary will be reviewed with you before the Morning Welcome with the Program Director.

  • Traveling to Rochester

You can arrive in Rochester via airplane, bus or train, all terminals are approximately 20 minutes from the Holiday Inn Express. Transportation to and from the hotel is not provided, however taxi service is available.
