Interview Visit Details
Time to meet our current residents
One of the most popular parts of your interview is a casual dinner at a restaurant the evening before your interview day. This is an opportunity to talk informally with our present house staff. Transportation will be provided from the hotel. Plan to be picked up at the hotel lobby at 6:30 pm and returned at 9:30 pm. I hope you will be able to arrive in Rochester early enough to attend this.
If you are driving and arrive later than 6:30 pm and would still like to attend the dinner, we will send you directions to the restaurant. If you arrive late to the Holiday Inn, Airport, but do not have transportation, inquire at the front desk.
The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Rochester General Hospital will pay for one night’s accommodation at the following hotel:
Holiday Inn Rochester Airport Hotel
911 Brooks Avenue
Rochester NY 14624
Blocks of rooms have been reserved at our expense for the night prior to your interview. You must make a reservation with your credit card, telling them that you are with the Rochester General Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program. When you check in your credit card will not be charged, **however, if you do not show up and cancel your reservation 72 hours in advance, you will be charged the hotel fee.** Please make your reservation early. The Holiday Inn, Airport will not guarantee a room immediately before your interview date.
Please call the hotel at 585-328-6000 to make your reservation. Be sure to tell them that you are with the Rochester General Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program.
If you need to cancel your interview, please contact the program office at (585) 922-4365 and
the hotel to cancel the reservation to avoid charges.
If you choose to stay an extra day before or after your interview, we have arranged a discounted fee $75.00/night,
but you will need to make that reservation and assume the additional cost.
- Information Folder
When you check in at the hotel, you will be given a folder of information from our program. Details for your visit including the arrangements for the evening dinner and the pick-up times for transportation to the hospital for your interview day will be included. If you do not stay at the hotel, your folder will be given to you when you arrive at your interview. The interview day itinerary will be reviewed with you before the Morning Welcome with the Program Director.
- Traveling to Rochester
The Holiday Inn offers complimentary airport shuttle service to and from the Greater Rochester International Airport. Please contact the Holiday Inn at 585-328-6000 to reserve the shuttle service prior to the arrival date.
If you are arriving by bus or train you will need to arrange for your own transportation from the Trailways/Greyhound bus station or Amtrak train station in downtown Rochester, both of which are about seven miles from the Holiday Inn.
