New Requirement for Emergency Medicine Residency Applicants: The Standardized Video Interview (SVI)



Just a heads up for anyone considering Emergency Medicine this Application Cycle.

AAMC has implemented a massive new ERAS application component called the Standardized Video Interview (SVI) for all Emergency Medicine residency applicants. This will be 6 recorded questions and answers to get a more in-depth look at an applicant’s abilities in interpersonal communication and professionalism.

SVI submission will begin when ERAS opens and has a final deadline of July 31, 2017.
