Would it be an NRMP violation if a program conducted hybrid interviews by offering applicants the option to have either an in-person or virtual interview? The Codes of Conduct for Programs state programs must minimize bias by conducting interviews in-person or virtually, but not both.
It is not a violation of NRMP policy to conduct hybrid interviews.
However, the NRMP Codes of Conduct expect programs to engage in recruitment activities that promote transparency and wellness and minimize bias. Programs are encouraged to develop interview processes and policies ensuring that each applicant has an equal opportunity to communicate equitably with the program and to be considered by the program.
