Interview Experiences
Awesome interview day that was short enough to even allow TY interview at UPMC.
Program Advantages
Program director is very interested in improving the educational experience, particularly through technology in their great wet lab curriculum.
Great, personable, invested program director. Possibility of moving resident clinic to new site serving more indigent population. Pittsburgh is a great city with lots to do.
Program Disadvantages
Only disadavantage may have been NM rotation but everyone there said they loved it and it was a big plus.
