Interview Experiences
short interview. many nerdy residents--it is MGH though. one interview (out of three) with exceptional female faculty member who made a great impression.
ok, PD wasn't my kind of person, more research oriented, but its MGH
Information session, 3 interviews (2 faculty members, chair), lunch, tour (Ether Dome and all). Generally quite relaxed, except for the interview w/Dr. Zapol (then chair).
Introduction with PD and chair. 5 interviews. Nice tour of the ether dome.
Program Advantages
MGH name, great experience, research. pain program being revamped
big name, lots of cases. strong critical care program
While I think that MGH provides great training (particularly in CT, critical care, peds, pain, and research), I think that its greatest strengths are reputation and location.
Very well rounded. No real weaknesses. Very prestigious name.
Program Disadvantages
antiquated didactics, program appears to be relying on name
its MGH and they know it, seem to rest on laurels a little
Seemed to be weak in regional anesthesia. No moonlighting. Its a program that, IMO, falls on the wrong side of the service/education balance.
Staggered start to CA-1 year. Very research oriented.
