On the day of your On-site interview: Meet at the reception desk in the Academic Center (across Jefferson Highway from the main Hospital; 1401 Jefferson Highway) at 12:45 p.m.  A UQ/Ochsner Clinical School administrator will greet you and take you to the classroom where you will receive a detailed schedule for the day. You will attend a presentation by Dr. Seoane, Deputy Head of School, or other school leadership; take a tour of the hospital with current students; and then interview with program faculty. The interview activities will extend into the late afternoon. You are required to attend all activities. Please plan your flights/hotel stay accordingly.
