Interview Experiences
Interviewers were friendly, basically chatted.
Saturday interview. Very well organized. PD gave tour.
Half day....
PD didn't inspire the most confidence in program, but he was honest.
Program Advantages
Residents get great fellowships. New Chair (Delphin) has been bringing in some great faculty from excellent institutions (MGH, Columbia, Sinai, etc). Great research opportunities, and amazing pain management experience.
Train ride away from NYC
Strong clinical anesthesiology exposure thanks to being in level 1 trauma center in Newark. Rotate through diverse centers including HUMC (more advanced placed for cardiac exposure) and the VA.
Program Disadvantages
Not very competetive, older attendings not very good
Out in Newark New Jersey, rotate at 4 different sites
University Hospital is a hole and they totally know. PD spent 40 min going over an online tour of Hackensack Hospital to show how beautfiul it was.
Newark isn't the nicest place to live. Community program and UH has terrible ancillary staff.
