Interview Experiences
Nice faculty
Great program overview. ~7 (2 on 1) interviews. Very friendly.
Program Advantages
VA experience, good numbers, small program without fellows so lots of primary exposure, call schedule not bad
Strong surgical training, new facilities
Awesome chair. Friendly faculty. Facilities all right there. Very good surgical volume for Chicago (150+ cats; good in other subs as well). Very good/busy clinic experience. Residents work hard, but are happy, and see a lot.
Program Disadvantages
Not very well known, little research
Little research (but improving with Dr. Bouchard), few faculty in certain specialties
30 min away from city.
