  • 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.
  • types/number of spots available, ESIR available

Texas - Houston
Baylor College of Medicine Program (Houston)
See last year's spreadsheet. Huge downside is that it partnered with RadPartners, a big corporate radiology private equity group, which not only poses a threat to the job satisfaction of radiologists at large (buying up private practices and then re-hiring rads to work harder for less money), but likely detracts from the quality of training as well (despite what they tell you). Would not touch until they separate again. Buyer beware
