Applicant Interview Information

Welcome to the Department of Surgery at CWRU!

Thank you for considering the Department of Surgery at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. We look forward to having you join us. Below is all the information you will need for the visit.  

Evening Prior to the Interview:

On the evening prior to your interview, we invite you to a casual dinner at Nighttown Restaurant. The event will start at 7:00pm and end at approximately 10:00pm. The dinner is your chance to meet and engage conversation with current categorical residents. It will give you a feel for the program and some insight into Case Western Reserve University. Feel free to bring your significant other if you are traveling with one. Dinner is compliments of the Department of Surgery. It is not a mandatory event to attend but is encouraged. The dress is casual, so jeans are fine. The address to Nighttown Restaurant is as follows:
