The cost of applying to medical school is a financially burdensome process. With interview travel alone, costing hundreds if not thousands of dollars. To me this represents an unnecessary financial barrier and disproportionately impacts those from less privileged backgrounds. These are the people we specifically need more of in medicine. With every medical school touting the value of diversity I call upon them to do the bare minimum. Remove the in-person interview. Continue to use virtual interviews. This year has proven that virtual interviews are feasible and valid! It is the 21st century let's us technology to reduce barriers.
