Abstract

The COVID 19 pandemic has forced residency programs to consider virtual interview formats that can disproportionately and negatively impact unrepresented in medicine applicants. Diversity is a compelling interest for residency programs. In order to recruit and retain a diverse workforce, programs must recognize the deleterious effect virtual interviews may have on underrepresented in medicine applicants.
