Thalamus worked great for us this year.  It was the first time we used an online scheduler.  It was much easier having the applicants schedule themselves, and saved us a lot of work and made it much easier to keep track of the schedule. Feedback from applicants was positive as well. We filled out our entire calendar in 10 minutes!

Inviting 180 candidates to interview and getting them all scheduled used to take 2 full days of work.  Now the process I go through has been so simplified with Thalamus!  The support staff at Thalamus are very responsive and always there to help me get the most out of their program. I highly recommend it!

As a new program, we looked at many different options for interview scheduling. Thalamus was by far the best solution we found. The ease of scheduling was second to none. The applicants love it because they were able to see which days were available and choose which date worked best for them. We plan to use Thalamus again next year!

I recently completed my second interview season using Thalamus. I no longer spend countless hours on the phone or email scheduling and rescheduling interviews. Thalamus gives the applicant the control and flexibility to schedule their interview based on their availability, all the while, freeing me up to create the best interview experience possible!

Thalamus has been the perfect scheduling tool throughout the interview season. The ease of access combined with the dedicated customer support staff has allowed our program to focus on the important aspects of this process; meeting and connecting with potential residents.

After using Thalamus for the first time this year, I will never go back to the telephone/email way of scheduling applicants. Thalamus made scheduling a snap and left me with time for other important things during the day. Will definitely return next recruiting season!

We tried Thalamus for the first time in 2015 and found that it eliminated a tremendous amount of administrative work. It was especially helpful in September when we invited 159 applicants and scheduled almost all of them during a single 24-hour period with just a few clicks and virtually no phone calls or emails. But it was also a big help throughout the interview season as our applicants easily canceled and rescheduled their interviews as needed without having to bother us. Using Thalamus gave us a lot more time to focus on the interview experience and on the day-to-day operations of running a residency program.

One of the best features of Thalamus is its customer support.  The team was very responsive to our needs and questions. We also provided suggestions for improvement which they took under advisement and, oftentimes, implemented in their upgrades.  It felt like we were helping Thalamus design a software that truly addresses the program coordinators’ needs and wants, instead of having a software that is only partly useful in helping us get our job done.  We now have a powerful software, designed with our input, that has features we need the most, as well as many of the features that are nice to have.  This unique relationship that Thalamus has established with its users is priceless and makes all the difference!

Scheduling 150 interview spots in 90 minutes is amazing. I have used other scheduling software and Thalamus is a far superior product. I never thought scheduling software could be this easy. Importing and organizing applicant information is seamless. Applicants consistently tell me they love using Thalamus.

I cannot imagine going through interview season without Thalamus! With a program as large as ours, having an online scheduling system in which applicants can schedule and edit their interview dates, allows me the time to manage all the other processes involved with interview season. We conducted over 260 applicant interviews this year; our highest volume year ever! This would not have been possible without Thalamus!  Every program needs Thalamus!

Thalamus has been an amazing addition to our fellowship program!! Scheduling candidates is a breeze! It cuts down on back and forth emails and allows the applicants to see a wide range of dates and then schedule or cancel as needed! As a coordinator, it has been amazing to not feel like something will slip through the cracks.  Happy Coordinator = Happy Program Director! We cannot wait to use Thalamus again next season!

Thalamus is an amazing system.  It helped our interview scheduling process immensely! The system is wonderful for applicants to be able to easily book, reschedule, or cancel their interview times without involving our interview coordinator’s time.  Thank you Thalamus!
