The group (all 4 candidates) meet with the Director, Frank Paloucek, Hospital Pharmacy administration, goes on a tour (with a current resident),   attends resident report, have lunch with current residents, and finish the day with Dr Paloucek at a wrap-up session. All candidates are evaluated individually through four (4)  one on one interviews using  a structured interview process with behaviorally-based questions sets. Dr Paloucek interviews everyone, the remaining interviews are conducted by members of the Residency Interview Committee.
