Integrated Video Interviews

Thalamus helps coordinators deliver a world-class virtual interview experience while freeing up more time to spend interacting with applicants, faculty and program leadership during interview days.

Thalamus’ virtual interview platform provides a GME-focused, optimized virtual interview experience integrated directly with interviewer scoring and notes. Group meetings and breakout rooms are created automatically and linked directly to applicant and faculty schedules. Everything is tracked on interview day through a Master View, providing a streamlined virtual experience supporting program coordinator workflows.

Our virtual interview experience includes innovations like virtual knocks, that allow program coordinators to let session participants know their interview time is almost up, as well as participant-driven movement allowing applicants and interviewers to self-navigate through interview days.  Multiple video layouts provide ideal views to experience all types of sessions from orientations to 1:1 or group/panel interviews.

Rated #1 by applicants & programs

"Thalamus has truly turned our hectic recruitment season into a joy! We are able to focus more on ensuring we show each applicant why Duke is the place for them, rather than spending it hand-scheduling each applicant. It promotes fairness, effectiveness, and most importantly, efficiency! We will never look back on what we had prior to Thalamus!"

"I cannot imagine going through interview season without Thalamus! With a program as large as ours, having an online scheduling system in which applicants can schedule and edit their interview dates, allows me the time to manage all the other processes involved with interview season. We conducted over 260 applicant interviews this year; our highest volume year ever! This would not have been possible without Thalamus! Every program needs Thalamus!"
