Program Summaries

Ohio - Columbus
Ohio State University Hospital Program
Large medical center with high volume
Mix academic/non-academic type training. Plenty of opportunities to do serious research but not mandatory. You can learn to read high volume which will be helpful finding a job in private practice. I wouldn't say you are constantly pressured to read like that, but some rotations will prepare you for this.
Some of the best teachers in MSK, Cardiac, Nuc Med that you could find anywhere.
Columbus is an awesome city if you're a resident. Affordable, fun, good for families too.

Loved this program last year interviewing. I ended up ranking it higher than several of the so-called top 20/top 30 programs. Tons of hands-on interventional & procedure training in brand-new IR facilities. Excellent moonlighting. Columbus is a real hidden gem, it's actually the largest city in the state, and lots of things to do. One of the leading programs in AI/machine learning research. Chair and PD seemed to be great, very pro-resident.
