Interview Experiences
Breakfast/Intro Tour Lunch 4/5 faculty interviews
A bunch of 2 to 1 interviews. Extremely nice faculty and program coordinator.
6 panel style interviews.
Good program introduction. ~6 interviews (most 2 on 1) and all asked many negative questions (talk about weaknesses/mistakes you made/difficult situation/criticized my step score). Not a way to make a positive impression!
Good, several 1-1 interviews, well organized
Program Advantages
Great facilities Former association with Wilmer program Strong plastics Attentive faculty
Excellent teaching and very nice and friendly residents and faculty.
every doc used to be staff at wilmer so lots of big wigs and contacts.. great teaching
Happy residents. Good technology. Chair was very nice. Overall, faculty seemed nice.
Small program, good faculty, decent pathology/surgical numbers
Program Disadvantages
Small program can be a turn-off to some
only 2 residents per year, which some people may prefer
small program?
Overshadowed by JHU/Maryland. Poor surgery numbers, clinics not busy enough?? Baltimore.
Small program, area?
