ASN Encourages Fellowship Programs to Conduct Interviews Remotely

By ASN Staff

May 28, 2020

The American Society of Nephrology (ASN) recognizes that the current coronavirus pandemic has placed unique demands on frontline caregivers, necessitated restrictions on travel, and imposed limitations on individuals with various health conditions.

To help ensure the health, safety, and security of our applicants during the 2020-2021 recruitment cycle, ASN strongly encourages nephrology fellowship programs to conduct all interviews with applicants remotely, utilizing both telephone and videoconferencing capabilities. Programs should not disadvantage applicants who are unable to travel due to personal or programmatic decisions, and programs should plan for an all-virtual recruitment season.

If you have questions about this recommendation, please contact ASN at workforce@asn-online.org.
