Yes, dinner at restaurant/external location
Interview dinners are the night before for AM, and the evening following for PM. Breakfast and lunch provided on interview day. Residents cycle into the conference room to chat. 30 minute interviews with PD and 2 other faculty. Housing seems awesome. Reimbursement for conferences - 2500 per, no cap. Well-known faculty. Very chill vibes from the faculty and residents, match where they want to go. TONS of IR volume, and tons of procedures on the other services (body, MSK, mammo, etc).
Didn't get to see too much on the tour. Never saw a window facing the outside the entire day (everything's in the basement). The chiefs emphasized how they and MSW are completely different programs, seemed a bit contemptuous.
Encouraged, sent an email.
