HOST Program

Dear Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine alumni,

For the last several years VTC School of Medicine Alumni Association has sponsored the HOST program, where willing alumni provided lodging to our current students who were embarking on their residency interviews. 

In 2020, the host program moved to the virtual space and our students received exceptional guidance and support from you, yielding an excellent match.

This year, in 2021, VTCSOM alumni have two options to assist current M4s as they embark on their residency interviews. You can choose to participate as a traditional in-person host to students or as a virtual host:

  • traditional in-person hosts will provide lodging to current students and 
  • virtual hosts will provide support and guidance virtually through the method of your choosing (typically email, phone, or text.)

Both options allow you to provide support and guidance so students can learn more about your specialty, program, geographic location, and other interests. 

To participate, just fill out the form below and indicate which methods you would prefer students contact you (email, phone, text) as well as your choice for type of host and they will reach out to you directly. If you are willing to help a current student, please complete the form below, even if you participated in the past. 

Thank you so much for continuing to support your fellow VTCSOM Hokies during their residency interviews!

If you are willing to help a current student, please complete the form below, even if you participated in the past.
