Interview Experiences
Probably the most formal of all my interviews.
2 interviewers, 'behavioral interview' not that bad, just talked about a patient that had some ethics involved, nice presentation
Most formal of the interviews. 'Behavioral technique' didn't really feel all that different from the rest of my interviews, but more anxiety provoking the night before. Limo from hotel to campus.
Will comment on programs after match
excellent
Pretty efficient, behavioral interview questions kind of weird
Very slick interview day. A tad formal, but not off-putting. Very efficient, not too long (out by 2:30), professional. Behavioral interview much less formal than anticipated, questions not bad, I only had 3, although they do make it slightly more awkward.
Program Advantages
Good general traning. Lovely pediatrics hospital.
great benefits, nice place to live, good case mix, program director committed to improving residency
Lots of perks. Great technology. Nashville is affordable and there is a lot to do.
CC, in house moonlighting, nice residents
Cutting edge procedures/technology, great location
Seems well rounded, great exposure in all areas. Tons of ICU experience; ICUs are brand new x4 and are PALACES. Residents seemed normal, easy going. Tons of perks. Great computer system, fancy technology. Nashville is an awesome town. Centralized, with VU
Program Disadvantages
Hard to explain but it kind of seemed personality-less in some ways, not very memorable. Not sure how i'd interpret that though.
very demanding intern year, ? less-desirable CRNA relationships or else people aren't as open at other places.
When I asked a resident how happy the rest of the residents were with their decision to be at Vandy, response was 'about 50/50.' Complained of not receiving enough teaching.
mostly categorical, which kept it from being #1
Rumor has it that intern year sucks. The 'Vanderbilt syndrome'?
