Interview Experiences
presentation followed by 1on1 interviews and a long bus tour of the city
9 interviews (8 faculty 1 chief). Exceptional tour of beautiful Seattle! Chair sits down with applicants to discuss what they seek in a program. One interviewer will challenge your knowledge of research you've done.
Program Advantages
New chair is awesome, good changes in the future
Really great teaching from many of the faculty, expanding to 5 residents, Seattle is beautiful. good surgical numbers.
van gelder is a big name, president of AAO good surgical numbers
Diverse pathology with large amount of autonomy. This is due to Seattle being the referral center for WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho). Van Gelder (chair) is exceptional. Protected research time (with a strong bioinforrmatics research).
Program Disadvantages
New facilities are still in the works, a program in flux although headed in the right direction
Very busy call, faculty very young, lots of traffic in Seattle between sites
Surgical experience middle of the road. Seattle is gorgeous but issues with high cost of living. Very very busy call (q5 for first two years then q10).
