    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University.

    Interview

    There is a phone interview with HR prior to any in person interviews. Then the in person interview is a multi step process consisting of one interview with the upper management and one interview with many of the therapy staff.
