Interview Experiences
6 interview, 3 hour tour of all the facility, lunch, pre-interview dinner
Visited hospitals where residents rotate. 7 or 8 one on one interviews with faculty. Lots of driving.
Positive
Kind of weird vibes from both the residents and the faculty. A lot of the residents were SDA and it showed.
Program Advantages
Good clinical training
Good surgical volume, affliation with navy so you do refractive surgery (~160 eyes), supportive staff, great pathology (VA and county)
Location, good surgical volume 150-200. Very nice faculty
4 residents, california
Good volume, fabulous refractive experience with the exchange with the naval program in San Diego
Program Disadvantages
In the middle of nowhere. Subspecialities lacked depth of faculty.
cover 5 hospital that is spread out (30-40 mins driving) during call
7th Day advantist so a little bit religious, doesn't necessarily have to be a disadvantage but I felt a little out of place. Poor reputation.
cover lot of territory on call
