  • impressions of the residents
  • culture of the program, pressure on residents to read quickly
  • exposure to procedures, how do readouts work, moonlighting available etc.
  • hospital characteristics: size, trauma, pediatric exposure, community/academic/mixed etc.

Program Summaries

Connecticut - Farmington
University of Connecticut Program
Friendly PD/faculty

Independent call (pro or con)
Small academic program, isolated area, residents seemed indifferent about program

Agree with above. Little to no transplant exposure. Connecticut can get very expensive for suburbia
No internal moonlighting currently and residents mentioned questionable external moonlighting at PP group
