Interview Experiences
Day split into two groups, half in AM, half PM, with tour in the other half. Dr. O'Malley asks you about other programs (strengths/weaknesses), but I think it's just curiosity about competition.
Program Advantages
Well-balanced, great head and neck. Unique robotics research. Strong research for a 5 year-only program. The 'home' of endoscopic sinus surgery.
Program Disadvantages
While robotics is often touted, you probably won't have much exposure as a resident. Resident clinic seems to the residents like more of a hassle than useful learning.
