Interview Experiences
too many questions about how many kids I wanted to have
tour, 5-6 interviews, lunch
Good day. 5-6 one on one interviews
Longer day but meet with good amount of faculty and residents. Very low key. Want you to get a good idea of the program and experience in Detroit.
GREAT!!! several 1-1 interviews
Multiple course preinterview dinner, nice hotel accommodations, very comprehensive and informative interview day, 6 interviews q10-20 min

Program Advantages
continuity clinic (where you follow pts for all 3 yrs), most of the rotation are done at one facility, nice wet/simulation lab, go home post-call
good facilities. lots of faculty in all areas
Great group of residents. Very nice faculty. Decent #'s. EyeSI simulator and nice wet lab. Good pathology but not overwhelming days. Call can be busy but can stay at APT attached to hospital. Go home post call at noon.
-Very happy residents, great fellowship match, amiable faculty, great environment. Phenomenal program.
Loved the program!!! Amazing faculty and facilities (wetlab, eyesi, etc), decent level of autonomy
True autonomy, ++ path and surg training, continuity of care, moonlighting 3rd year, fellowship match 2nd to none, paid Houston BCSC course, nationally recognized microsurg lab, femtosecond/lasik cert, affiliation DIO=research++

Program Disadvantages
my impression was that they don't like to do research. Detroit
location and research, no VA or county affliation
little research, Detroit
Poor research. Poor/Avg fellowship placement. No VA (although #'s are ok). New hospital opening in suburbs...not sure how it will affect program. Detroit can be tough unless meet the right people to show you around.
Detroit can be a plus and minus
Research?
phacos ~140 (recruit own pts, avg numbers otherwise), detroit (rebirth occurring right now?), one cornea attending on indefinite leave makes for a weaker rotation, Peds shared with kresge and beaumont, weaker plastics
