Interview Experiences
Great interview day plan. Efficient. 1/2 Day. Drinks/Appetizers at the Chairman's house after with residents and staff. Super nice and friendly.
Nice smaller private based program where the people seemed nice enough.
Long day, about six 2/3-1 interviews, a few tough and a few odd questions
Program Advantages
new chair from Iowa, new facilities, strong peds
New chair from Iowa who is definitely putting program on up and up. Strong Peds. Small and friendly. Beautiful new eye center. Two VA's (one if 45 min away). Solid #'s.
Involved and caring faculty.
Kansas City, Great feel/loved the people
Program Disadvantages
less representation from retina, plastics, glaucoma. Little research
Small, poor research, VERY poor glaucoma, not diverse patient load at eye center (located in affluent Prairie Village, KS). Eye Center is located not on main medical campus. Not geared to fellowship if so desired.
Small program, less academic, smaller volume and concordantly less pathology
Low peds and glaucoma numbers, low first time boards pass rate
