Welcome to the University of Illinois College of Medicine HOST Program student request form. This service is designed for students who are participating in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and seeking residency placement in the coming year. This program aims to facilitate a connection between student requests and alumni volunteers who are able to host students or provide additional guidance for residency interviews in their local area.
HOST Program Process
We are in the process of formally building the HOST Program and are working to find optimal alumni hosts across the country to fit student requests. Although we will work diligently to find a local alumni host we cannot guarantee a host. We encourage students to book alternative lodging that could be cancelled if and when a host is identified.
Please fill out the below student request form. Once we receive your completed request we will reach out to alumni in our database who have expressed interest in hosting students visiting their area during their residency interview process. Once we have confirmed their interest and availability during your travel dates we will connect you directly with the alumna/us via email.
It will then be the student’s responsibility to follow-up with the host to arrange specific arrangements and logistics. We ask that when you connect with or stay with an alumna/us that you remember that you are representing the University of Illinois College of Medicine and conduct yourself in a professional and respectful manner during your visit. Also, we encourage you to send a follow-up thank you note upon returning from your visit.
