New Specialty-Wide Standards for the Ob-Gyn Residency Application and Interview Processes

To address growing challenges in the residency application and interview processes, the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG) and the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) have proposed specialty-wide standards for the Ob-Gyn residency programs to adopt this calendar year 2019-2020. These recommendations include:

  1. Setting a final Ob-Gyn application deadline to October 1
  2. Limiting interview invitations to the number of interview slots available within a program and allowing applicants a minimum of 72 hours after an interview invitation email to respond
  3. Informing applicants of their final status by November 22 (such as invited for interview; wait-listed; or rejected, if the applicant has not been offered an interview)

In addition, the programs are encouraged to follow a common release of interview dates on October 8 and October 15.
