Program Advantages
Big program (10 per year) Great teachers Very light night float/on-call schedule
- Big program 10 residents/year. - Not fellow heavy so residents have lots of experience. - Excellent teaching from both residents and faculty.PD was a resident at the program, and is a huge advocate. Amazing group of residents, best on trail.
A strong academic center with a large class of residents. PD very enthusiastic and positive about direction of program. Some of nicest residents on trail.
OK pathology, OK reading rooms
Large residency class. Boston. The gentrification of South End helps, many trendy spots nearby.
boston is a great city but expensive, , seem to see great pathology with VA, level 1 trauma center, very underrated program. Resident seemed very very happy.
- Dept chair is a huge name in radiology and very personable. Seemed like there was a lot of money to go around. - Good didactics, residents seemed on their A-game - great trauma, call experience. Despite competing with other Boston programs, there def

Program Disadvantages
No housing
None that I could think of. This program seriously rules.
Not many. BU does a good job of not being overshadowed by the other programs in the area. Hospital not in the greatest of locations but not so much that it's a dealbreaker.
in general, pathology seems very split among the glut of Boston programs, so I actually ranked all the Boston programs I applied to pretty far down my list.
Small for a university hospital.
only negative is dont rotate at Boston Childrens for peds
- Boston's cold, cost of living is high. - Peds experience seemed weak without a children's hospital - Possibly overworked residents? Definitely not a 'chill' program if that's what you're looking for.
