Interview Experiences
long, but great. lots of interaction with residents, who appeared friendly, fun, and very happy
big interview group, nice interviews but quite challenging. most questions were 'psychological profiling' in nature. concerted effort to brand themselves as 'happy harvard' but somehow was pimped by attending in the OR and resident had no interest in talk
Very long and tiring interview day. 6 interviews with planned questions. Nice cocktail hour at end of day.
Very long day, but very thorough.
Program Advantages
excellent program with strong didactics, great harvard simulator, great pain program
Awesome program!
rep. case mix. quality of faculty.
Prestigious name. Strong clinical exposure. Strong OB and cardiac.
Program Disadvantages
the chair told me 'you will not be able to start and finish your own research project here.' quite a turn off. residents work very long hours (>70), which will increase with the addition of more ORs this year.
Other than being in Boston (ie RedSox, Bruin, Celtic, and Patriot fans), I cannot think of much.
critical care anesthesia has a ways to go here. big class
No transplant or trauma.
