The Interview Process


What to Expect


Temple University Episcopal HospitalTemple University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science offers training encompassing the full spectrum of disciplines within the field of Psychiatry. Unlike the psychiatric departments of many other institutions, Temple Episcopal Hospital is a freestanding university psychiatric facility offering a comprehensive range of services to the public. On the day of your interview, you can expect to take a tour of this six-story facility while visiting multiple acute, extended acute, outpatient and crisis response center departments. Furthermore, you will be exposed to various non-psychiatric divisions including the emergency department, physical therapy and special victims unit. During lunch you will have the opportunity to interact with current residents. It is important for us that you experience the comradery shared by our residents. Over the course of the day, you will be interviewed by two attending and resident physicians. The goal of the interview is not so much to assess your mastery of psychiatry, but to get a sense of your personality, character and the degree to which you will add to the friendly atmosphere here at Temple University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science.
