Schedule a visit

 We encourage prospective applicants to attend a tour at BIDMC if at all possible. Our tours, which are more like an onsite information session, are available most Fridays from November 1st through mid-January. A visit allows you to learn first-hand about the atmosphere of the internship, to meet key personnel and current interns, and to determine whether we would be the right fit for you.

Please plan ahead and reserve a spot at least one week in advance. The BIDMC tour begins at 12:15 pm and takes approximately 1.5 hours. During that time you will likely meet with Julie Robarts, the DI Coordinator, as well as current interns.  We have coordinated our Friday tour time with both Massachusetts General Hospital (10 AM) and Brigham and Women's Hospital (2 PM) so that, if desired, you can visit all three programs on the same day. 

To reserve your spot, please contact Julie at
