What is Thalamus?

Thalamus is a SaaS (software as a service) company currently on its growth stage out of Silicon Valley. They are a mission-driven company with the main mission of ensuring that the right doctor gets to the right hospital to treat the right patient, and vice versa. Individual residency, fellowship programs, and entire hospital systems purchase the software and use it to integrate with the electronic residency application service through AAMC, SF Match, or other application providers. The programs import that data and then send invites for an interview. The applicants receive an email with a link to create a profile and then are brought to a calendar where they can schedule their residency or fellowship interview in real-time. On the program side, it allows them to score candidates, write notes, build rank lists for the match, etc.
