Yes, I would. Even wearing a derby or split toe should be avoided for interviews IMHO, especially for something like a residency interview where you may meet with many people and you don't want to give ANY of them a bad vibe. Personally I'd even stay away from broguing except for potentially a stamped captoe, something like a Park Avenue would be perfect, as Sator said.
