Interview Experiences
Panel (5 on 1), 2 on 1 (with chair), 1 on 1 with prog director
3 interviews: two panel interviews (3-4 on 1) and one 1-on-1 with Dr. Starr the PD
I felt like I was in a 5-star hotel. Large interview group, seemed a bit awkward when waiting with so many other people in one conference room and the residents mostly talking to themselves. 5 interviews with 2-3 faculty each; well organized and on time u
Enjoyable, awesome faculty
5 interviews, most 2-on-1 or more. Extremely friendly. Tour of resident housing.
Program Advantages
New Chair (DAmico from MEEI), new facilities next year. Guaranteed housing, NYC. On the rise?
new chair (Dr. D'Amico) and new PD, very nice housing, residents were the happiest I saw anywhere, new building, excellent fellowship matches
Large program, seemingly on the rise. In the middle of Manhattan. Very very nice facilities and resident housing.
Dr. D'Amico, happy residents
Subsidized housing, beautiful facilities, young and friendly faculty. Great place to train, great fellowship match. Some of the nicest residents I've met.
Program Disadvantages
Low volume (80), q3 call
low surgical numbers, small program (3 residents)
In the middle of Manhattan, very busy area, which is up to your personal preferences.
Small program, very young faculty from MEEI, NYC surgical volume
More of the academic approach to surgery, but still getting good surgical numbers (and growing) for NYC.
