Interview Experiences
great interview day; hotel is fantastic. friendly residents, all seem happy. chair and program director seemed strange to me. the pd went through this 'teaching' bit with me, which was more like forcing teaching down my throat, and scared me off.
Work environment Amazing facilities, CHOP is #1 in the US (prob the world), high risk L&D galore. Ave. = 65-70 hrs/wk as per residents (although depends on rotation). Uses electronic anesthesia record. Pt load Very busy surgery service, overwhelmi
5 interviews (chair, PD, chief resident, 2 other faculty members), tour, information session.
Excellent hotel and dinner. 5 interviews including the PD and chair. One interview was more challenging than others--discussed ethical issues, but not malignant at all.
6 interviews: PD, chair + 4 others.
Program Advantages
peds, great pain program, lots of new faculty, research
see above
Pain, peds, critical care, CT, transplant, research/academics. They do allow moonlighting and, in fact, have a structured overtime system in place (w/very generous compensation).
Very strong overall. Great cardiac, pain, peds and critical care. Regional seemed good as well, but not as strong as the other areas. Internal moonlighting (extended call) set at $100/hr as of 2011-2012.
Strong name. Very well rounded. Opportunities to moonlight.
Big name, happy residents
Program Disadvantages
see above
Regional (sounded like they are working on this).
Residents here (and at Hopkins) seem to work harder than others, but this translates into great jobs and fellowships when your done.
Residents mentioned other departments can be difficult to work with.
REsidents seemed overworked
