Fellowship matches were excellent. Example this years class is sending people to mass gen, michigan, and duke. Mass gen resident is doing IR there.
Good board passing %
Very kind and supportive administration
Residents couldn’t stop talking about how well prepared by conferences they were for the CORE
Program seems to cut corners alot financially (i.e. pre-interview event was not a dinner, just appetizers). Does not pay for housing at AIRP
-multiple residents mentioned that chair was "cheap" and this was the first year they've been allowed to host pre-interview happy hour.
-Residents complained about moonlighting--stated they were severely underpaid at $40/hr
PD never gave a speech or anything about the program and seemed a bit uninvolved in the process. TBH he was a little bit awkward.
Most unorganized interview day/pre interview dinner that I've had so far.
PD didn’t speak to us either, but he was really into our 1 on 1 conversation. I think he’s just a laid back guy.
As to the cheap comment - ya I got a little bit of that feeling too. A little hospitality goes a long way. I think the lack of perks is this programs biggest negative. I have no doubt the training would be great however.
