Interview Experiences
Pre-interview dinner night before. Grand rounds in the morning followed by time with residents including presentation and lunch. Five interviews in afternoon with faculty
Dinner at a resident's house the night before, great breakfast in physician's lounge, lunch at a local bbq place. The PD met applicants in the parking lot when they arrived and held the door for us. He was super approachable and friendly. Sample grand
6 1-on-1 interviews; nice lunch; pretty long day ending around 5 PM
Five 1-1 interviews

oklahoma city; grand rounds may be a bit malignant but overall everyone is nice; some difficulty interview questions
None

Grand rounds are NOT malignant, however more than any other place I visited faculty would frequently question residents--will not be for everyone. OKC is an upcoming city, but optimal for families.
