Help Our Students Travel (HOST) Program

Match Day

Virtual HOST Program

The Help Our Students Travel (HOST) Program connects current UI Carver College of Medicine students and trainees exploring residency and fellowship opportunities with alumni "hosts" around the country.

The HOST Program is virtual, bringing together students and alumni via email, videoconferencing, and online panel discussions.

HOST Program alumni provide information about their local communities and share their residency and fellowship experiences. For alumni, it’s a great way to serve their medical school alma mater. For students and trainees, it’s valuable, real-world advice as they prepare to interview for residency and fellowship positions.

A sincere thank-you all of our Carver College of Medicine alumni who have welcomed students into their communities. Your insights and expertise help our students and trainees make important educational and career decisions regarding medical specialties and practice sites.

Alumni: Interested in connecting with a UI Carver College of Medicine student interviewing with a residency or fellowship program in your city? Register today, or email medicine-alumni@uiowa.edu to learn more.
