In Reply We thank Drs Greenberg and Scott for their interest in our article. The residency application process is a costly endeavor, and transitioning all residency interviews to video-conference interviews (VCIs) has the potential to reduce its effect on rising student debt. The use of VCIs eliminates travel time and increases flexibility of interview scheduling,1 allowing applicants to attend interviews that they otherwise may have missed because of transportation or temporal logistics.
