  • impressions of the PD, APDs, other faculty/attendings
  • 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
  • fellowship matches

Program Summaries

Michigan - Southfield
Ascension Providence/MSUCHM Program
Small community program.

Did a rotation here cause I was in the area. The residents are chill, everyone was nice and accommodating. Obviously it is a smaller program, but volume is high, pathology is diverse, training seemed intense and on par with programs in the area.
