HOST Program

Since 2011, the SMHS Office of Alumni & Community Relations has managed a HOST Program (Housing our Medical Students as they Travel) for UND medical students.

The program matches fourth-year medical students traveling across the U.S. for residency interviews with medical school alumni willing to provide lodging, transportation or general information regarding residency programs.
