Two applicants describe their experiences in applying for training in internal medicine. Information sent to the applicants about training programs was frequently inadequate to make an informed decision. Often institutions did not make clear their policies on interviews, and frequently the interviews themselves were unsatisfactory in purpose and conduct. The opportunity for applicants to meet with house staff members to discuss the training program varied greatly. Recommendations are offered to improve the application procedure, for the benefit of both the applicant and the training institution.
