Interview Experiences
2 one-on-one interviews and 2 two-on-one interviews
New chair, old chair. Most are 2 on 1 interviews.
2 on 1 or 3 on 1 interviews. Nice chairman though some of the younger faculty seemed arrogant. I found some of the residents to be unfriendly. Many FMG residents as well.
Poorly organized, rapid-fire interviews
Short presentation, followed by 7 1-2 on 1 interviews and a tour
~6 one on ones dinner the night before bus tour of new haven

Program Advantages
Dr. Tsai (new chairman) looks like he will turn this program around and make it great again
Chair extremely enthusiastic and energetic, Tsai from Columbia. program is building, may be among top in some years. variety of rotation sites, including va, community clinic, caribbean. the two AMD genes were identified here
Good name, some great faculty and excellent chairman. Great benefits (free indirect etc)
Strong and upbeat chairman, building program, rotation in caribbean seemed to be well-liked by the residents and not just to boost surgical numbers
Excellent fellowship match this year (plastics at UCLA; retina at Cal Pacific; cornea at Doheny, cornea at MEEI; medical retina at Bascom); very nice chairman
Great VA experience, Bahamas rotation, location takes advantage of the Yale undergrad community
The school name carries you a long way Very high salary (60K for PGY-2)
Research? Nice, happy residents with lots of time to read
wonderful program, good size of residents (medium), residents are happy/collegial big name in general public
- rotation in bahamas? - nice mix of young/experienced faculty

Program Disadvantages
small faculty, this is probably changing
New Haven isnt the best place for most people
Didn't like New Haven, unimpressive fellowship match, facilities a bit drab (although they built a new eye center), still young program
Young, developing program; New Haven is a con
Small program, some subspecialties only had 1-2 faculty.No simulator, no county hospital (but a clinic)
Eye clinics detached from most of the other medical facilities, average surgical numbers. New Haven potentially not the best place to live. Chair mentioned that they were losing faculty.
new york and boston are both commutes
- New Haven - lowish surgical numbers
