RTT residency programs will be offering a spousal or significant other travel and lodging subsidy of $250 or more to applicants who schedule interviews to be completed between October 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013. Simply ask about this benefit when scheduling your interview and provide receipts (e.g. airfare, car rental or mileage, baggage fees, lodging for the night prior to the interview) to the participating program. The program will not be able to reimburse you without the appropriate receipts.
