Interview Experiences
New facilities seemed nice.

duodenation dystrophy picture prebetrothal drybrained pycnonotinae bardesanite storehouse Lakeside Motel and Cottages http://flagspot.net/flags/hk.html
Interviewed 30-40 people on one day, that being a Saturday. It was very odd and met only a couple residents. Didn't see any conferences or residents in a normal working day.
40 interviewees was a little much for the number of residents available.
Large group of fellow applicants like 30-40. Interview day seemed a bit impersonal as you can imagine when there are 30 other applicants.
Was very impressed by facilities. I think the program is turning around.
Very impressive interviewee pool.
Saturday interview with ~50 other applicants felt like a cattle drive. Few residents to talk to and those that were there kind of stayed to themselves, which I found strange. Didn't get the full feel.
Huge group but worked well
Saturday interview with 50+ applicants. Made it difficult to get a good feel for the program.
Something like 50 applicants per interview day - like herding cattle. Made it somewhat chaotic & did not get a ton of exposure to residents. Same drill with 3-4 faculty interviews + 1 resident interview. All were very friendly.
Attended 2nd of 3 interview days; was on a saturday. Interviewed with two faculty and one resident.
Bit odd, interviewed with a ton of applicants
Interviewed on a Saturday with ~50 other applicants. Introduction by PD and dept chair, followed by 3 interviews. Didn't get to see the day-to-day operations of the dept., or attend a conference.
Interview dates only on weekends. Rumor that it is to 'hide' the residents, but not truth in actuality. I was asked for feedback on if having weekend interviews was better than weekday; it was thought that it would be easier for students to get to inter
Saturday with lots of applicants. Two very chill interviews and an informal session with the chairman during the break. Residents seemed like great people during the dinner.
Saturday, full with people doing morning and afternoon session
A little awkward. The chairman (he's nice) sits in with you while you wait your turn for interviews. Just makes no downtime available to unwind between interviews. I understand where they are coming from.
Huge day with 50 applicants. Friday tour led by Chairman Dr. Dodd. Chill interviews. They do not take you to the VA/county hosp--visited county hosp for prelim interview, physically nice but still on partial EMR.
Huge group on a Saturday with (optional) info session/tour with the chairman on Friday. The tour included everything not radiology related on the impressive campus. I didn't feel that it was particularly useful.
Large group but good tour of massive, shiny new facilities on Aurora campus. Laid back interview. Great residents who invited me out after pre-interview dinner.
laid back but seemed slightly dull - maybe due to Saturday interview. Chair gives extensive walking tour of incredibly impressive medical campus - bring decent shoes to walk in.

Awesome facilities, Denver.
Very nice new facilities. Denver is a great city close to many fantastic outdoor opportunities.
Location!
Has all of the pieces in place for an outstanding program in an amazing location.
Great facilities.
On the rise, getting lots of research started, nice people, excellent location
Nice new facilities. Denver!
Beautiful new campus and facilities. New chairman of the dept has big plans and appears like he is going to execute them. Program appears to be getting more stable after its recent downturn
Strong IR program New facilities Good patient variety and volume
Awesome people, great IR, Great Peds, Great City
Brand new, $1 B health science campus. Location. PC is a gem here.
Awesome chair. Program seems headed in right direction, chair wants to recruit more high-powered research names. Very good volume, very good hospital and referring departments. Faculty shake up occurred a few years ago, but program seems to have that b
Program imploded 5 years ago. New chairman seems to have turned thing around. Residents seemed content (though that might just be Denver). Great resident IR training
Nice new hospitals, strong in IR
Great facilities, beautiful campus, IR strong.
Very well-rounded. Amazing facilities. University hospital very nice, but only one of the sites covered. Got mixed vibes from residents--it was a bit hard to socialize with such a large group at the pre-interview dinner.
Nice facilities; Denver is a cool town with great weather; Chairman is very involved in advocating more research and building the program.
-Excellent setting -Excellent facilities -Very cool residents and faculty
Denver. Nicest medical campus out there. Denver. IR. Chair seems to have good vision for program. Denver.

Program Disadvantages
Seems to be in some disarray and losing faculty.

30 minute drive from Denver
Residents seemed very unhappy, and outright bitter, towards Dr. Dodd (new chair).
Residents seemed displeased with the program and program director. Having interview on Saturday seemed like they were trying to hide something. Training seemed average to mediocre.
Has been struggling for a few years 2/2 losing faculty. Is just starting to rebuild, I think.
Seems to be adjusting after some initial dissatisfaction with recent changes, and education/research seem to be improving, but I wasn't convinced that the quality of the program is as strong as others I interviewed at.
rotate at 5 different hospitals, large amount of turnover in faculty recently
Residents didn't seem quite as happy as others I met on the trail.
Program lost alot of faculty several years ago & thus things were rocky for several years. Things appear to be improving. Was told that the program director is not a student advocate and thus doesn't do much for the students - just a heads up.
Research program isn't strong No moonlighting
Rotate through multiple sites. Losing affiliation with National Jewish (highly-rated pulmonary hospital). I personally didn't jive with the PD here.
Faculty left a few years ago because of the old chair making changes, but that chair is no longer a part of the program. Not as much research as I expected, but new chair is trying to change that.
Recent faculty implosion. Spread out sites (though residents did not mind this).
Not in Denver, have to rotate at Denver community (distance?), workstations seemed like cubicles rather than open environment
Faculty is in the rebuilding phase.
Cover 5 hospitals. Many fellowships seem local. Not sure if this is because residents want to stay here, but this seemed odd.
Program is in Aurora, which is about a 30 min drive through Denver's 'ghetto' from downtown; residents kept to themselves during dinner and didn't seem very interested in telling candidates about the program; Denver is not very cosmopolitan.
-Multi-site rotations -Aurora campus is a 25 minute commute from Denver proper
Residents didn't seem that enthusiastic about the program.
