Interview Experiences
I loved the residents. They were my favorite residents of the whole interview trail. I liked meeting everyone and not having too much down time.
Interview day is very LONG! You interview individually with every faculty member and every resident. Lunch was nice. Residents were friendly.
Program Advantages
Galveston is a cool place to live I think, but it may be too quiet for some people. I thought the faculty were all cool and laid back. I would have been very happy here.
Solid, well-rounded program.
Program Disadvantages
Lots of driving now that their clinics are all over the place.
Galveston is still rebuilding and looks somewhat like a ghost town since Ike came through. They lost their children's hospital and have no plans to rebuild. They do not rotate at a VA- lose a lot of valuable surgical experience. Compete with UT Houst
