Post Interview Communication Policy

ACEPS Uniform Policy and Guidelines for Post Interview Communication

The use of second look interviews in preparation for the plastic surgery residency match is prohibited.

There will be NO communication between faculty and applicants after the interview except for faculty communicating with their own advisees.

There can be no unsolicited contact from anyone in the program to the applicant except the coordinator needing missing information for the application.

Contact with the residents in a program can only be initiated by the applicant. The content of the communication can under no circumstances address the applicant's desirability by the program, their ranking, etc.

The Program Director is responsible for disseminating this Policy within the Program. Regarding non-compliance:

Violations will be validated by the ACEPS Executive Committee, followed by forwarding of all validated violations to the RRC for investigation and possible citations.

All validated violations will be announced at the next ACEPS meeting.
