St. Mary's Medical Center Family Medicine Residency

Interview Day

Welcome! We have an eventful day planned for you. Spouses or significant others are encouraged to attend much of the interview day with the exception of medicine rounds. We can usually arrange an alternate agenda for them during medicine rounds which could include exploring Grand Junction or visiting with a current resident's spouse.

7:45 a.m. - Meet at the St. Mary's Family Medicine Center (corner of 12th and Patterson), meet our program director and see a short video about the program and the area. You can enter through Entrance #43. There is an elevator and stairs in the middle of the atrium that will take you to the second floor. You will meet  Melissa in the northwest corner of the building. Follow the signs.

8:30 a.m. - Interview with faculty

The formal interview day concludes by 2 p.m as a courtesy to allow for travel time. You are welcome to stay as long as you can to see resident and faculty interactions in the preceptor's area and for informal conversation. Please stay and explore our beautiful Grand Valley, the Colorado National Monument, the Grand Mesa or other interesting areas. Come and participate with whatever resident activity may be planned.

Please feel free to contact Melissa Shipp if you have any questions about your travel to Grand Junction or your interview day. If you are unable to come at your scheduled time, please call her as soon as possible so we can reschedule your appointment and open the slot for another applicant.

We look forward to meeting you!
