Dinner at a Pub 7:30AM-1:30PM
Conversational and friendly interview. Friendly residents. Got a good feeling about this one. Good dinner/mixer.
Good experience. Dinner night before in Wicker Park with residents - cool. Lots of interviews on day of. Would have ranked highly if I didn't feel like Chicago was too big for me.
Very pleasant, laid back. 6 20 minute interviews. Excellent noon conference.
6 laidback interviews and noon conference. Tour led by uninspiring residents. Great pre-interview dinner w/ very cool residents.
Pre-interview dinner was the best I've been to, with a fun group of residents who could not stop talking about how much they loved the program; Interview day started with presentation from PD, who is a nice guy with a good sense of humor; beautiful confer
Off the waitlist. Social residents: Chief took a couple of us out for a drink after dinner at a speak-easy. Hardest interview: 6 x 20 minutes.

Program Advantages
Program size.
Residents were really happy and were friends outside of work
Solid program.
Great name. I felt it was the best program in Chicago. Faculty has a strong pedigree. Some dude who invented PACS is there. Chair is on the Board of Directors of RSNA. The best call schedule in the country= more time to study on your own which is huge f
Chicago, GREAT lectures and teaching, moonlighting ($$$), peds trauma center. call is q14-17 (no NF)
Extremely friendly residents
Residents are happy. Staff are enthusiastic. Chicago my favorite big city in the US.
Excellent didactics. Excellent research opportunities. Program is on the cutting edge of PACS software; the guy who implemented it is there.
Good name, chill call schedule. New affiliation w/ Northshore is a plus. Fewer fellows than you might expect.
Collegial atmosphere; residents seem to get great training; highest physics scores for some reason; Chicago is a great city; U of C campus is beautiful and short commute from downtown; relaxed call schedule; some moonlighting available.
-Strong reputation -Super cool residents -PD is strong resident advocate -Great facilities with brand new hospital wing -Cush call schedule

Program Disadvantages
The cold. The training hospital seemed rather old.
Location in Hyde Park is a little rough.
Not sure about moonlighting opportunites here(should change with addition of Northshore). They are also building a new $700 million hospital to be completed 2012? with 7 new IR suites with MR fluoroscopy. not a negative, I just ran out of room above.
Location is in rough neighborhood
location (hyde park) other than that, PD just changed twice in past 4 years and chairman is being promoted. ER call sounds brutal - alone as a 2nd year covering ER, floor, IR. no attndg or senior.
Hyde Park neighborhood is intimidating for some. Not a level 1 trauma center.
Not as much volume as other institutions, although acquisition of North Shore hospital allows higher volume during that rotation since it is a private hospital.
In Hyde Park. Lack of bread and butter.
Not a level-one trauma center; call may be too chill.
