Interview Experiences
Standard. You interview with 2 faculty at a time. Most are adjunct.
Two days long, which was way too long.
Program Advantages
Fair amount of hands-on. Good VA, county, university and private exposure. A very solid program that trains good dermatologists.
Program Disadvantages
Very poor research base. Very small full-time faculty. Lots of departmental dysfunction. Surgical autonomy but perhaps too much.
Spread between four hospitals
