Help Planning my travel for residency interviews!

Hi, what's the usual interview period for IM residency.? As an img we need to plan our trip and apply for leave. Can we schedule all our interviews during particular period. I heard that you can get interview dates as early as oct end.
Any clue? Someone told me that may be a 4 week period from nov 20 to dec 20 will be good enough ( traveling included ) to schedule all ur interviews including program offering pre- matches.

Ps: this is only if I get any call

Interviews start from late September until Christmas and even January.

You can schedule your interviews during that period.

However, remember that some programs may give you limited options, like for example they can tell you "we have only December dates" or "you have to come on September 20" ...etc

So until you get the calls, I don't think you can schedule your travel efficienctly.

However, I'd say Sept 15 until December 15 is good enough
