Altus Suite is a standardized, three-part online assessment of non-cognitive skills, interpersonal characteristics, and personal values and priorities. These are all traits of successful residents in our program. Altus Suite will complement our traditional process for reviewing applications. We also plan to participate in a multi-center trial to evaluate the utility of Altus in the selection of diverse and successful residents.

- Snapshot: 10 minute one-way video interview with standardized questions
- Duet: 15 minute value-alignment assessment
- Access www.TakeAltus.com to learn more about the three-part assessment, important dates and requirements, and to create your account. The application fee for Altus is waived for applicants to our program this year.
