Implementing Virtual Recruitment and Admissions Strategies During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic presented a challenge for selection of applicants to the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine DVM program based on non-cognitive attributes. Three adaptations were made: A Situational Judgment Test was used early in the admission cycle; an asynchronous, standardized virtual interview was conducted on an online platform; informational videos and multiple virtual meeting sessions were organized in lieu of campus visits. Outcomes of these adaptations, relevance for a post-pandemic world, will be shared.

Attention: all attendees must provide proof of vaccination before checking in. Learn More
