Interview Experiences
Very friendly. Ranked them in top 3.
mostly pleasant
AM and PM sessions.
Really great. Amazing pre-interview social event, with drinks first (really helped everyone including me relax, hehe) and then dinner, both at these amazing places in the Liberty Hotel. Interview day was run really well, with 4 interviews. Everyone int
The interviewers here are perhaps slightly less personable than other places I visited. It was a little less touchy/feely but certainly not stressful. Most of the residents were friendly. I had the feeling I could be very happy here.
Great interviews. Residents were really cool and laid back, really enjoyed talking to them. Surprisingly laid-back atmosphere. Technology they have come up with for dealing with everyday hassles was amazing. Great pre-interview dinner! Would have been #2
Pretty good. Some of the residents had strong personalities, somewhat to my disliking, but some were great. Faculty interviews went fine.
Nice interview day. Everyone was very friendly. Well organized, a nice length - lots of opportunity to talk to residents.
Great pre-interview dinner. Residents were good people. Afternoon session with 4-5 low-stress interviews and an abbreviated tour.
Very friendly. Nice pre-interview dinner.
Most intense of any interviews I had. Everyone agreed this was the most intense interview.

Program Advantages
Unparalleled academic and research opportunities.
Theresa McCloud
Finish with a fellowship in 4 years! Good moonlighting, seemed to have a laid back, friendly reputation. Cool city
Probably the happiest residents I have met. Less busy than other big-time academic places. Very flexible program.
everything! But of note, for such a world-renowned place, everyone I spoke to was so down-to-earth and fun... really pleasant surprise!
MGH is the real deal. Their research is one of their greatest strengths. Molecular imaging here is really strong. I like the structure of their program with a mini-fellowship. Call here seemed to be totally reasonable.
Amt of call is not grueling at all--4-5 wks of NF! Residents are given a laptop and a welcome gift when they start (this year they got jackets). Got the impression that staff cared a lot about the residents.
MGH name. Decent moonlighting. Awesome city. They give you a laptop and $700/yr education fund. Not too overworked for a premier program. 80% go into private practice. Super easy to do research. 4-5 weeks of vacation per year.
This is just a top-notch program all around - I think it's the most 'prestigious' program in Boston, and one of the big players nationally (along with Mallinckrodt, UCSF, etc.). Opens all doors. Ranked it first.
MGH sells itself. PD is great. R4 year well-adapted for the new boards.
Really impressive research and built in 4th year fellowship concentration
Outstanding teaching, see all types of cutting edge stuff, friendly faculty, great research opportunities.
Great research, best location in boston, harvard name, rotate only at 1 hospital
Good facilities, great location in boston, best name in boston, only cover 1 hospital so very little call, great research.
Great location in boston. Only cover one hospital on call. Tons of research. Theresa McCloud.

Program Disadvantages
Boston has a relatively high cost of living (although much better than the West Coast). Cold. No dedicated IR service.
Expensive! However decent pay/benefits/moonlighing somewhat offset this. The one year advantage of finishing with a fellowship in 4 years definitely offsets this.
Although a great city, Boston winters are harsh. Probably won't be as well trained as compared to places that work you hard (i.e. MIR).
expensive part of boston
Boston is really expensive. I'm not sure how well I could get used to the daily grind of the long commute I'd need in order to find somewhat affordable housing. If you're single and don't mind high rent this would be a great place to train.
can't think of any
Perhaps less quality experience first year. Expensive city. Not an excellent place if you want to get good IR training during residency.
One of the only New England programs that doesn't rotate at Boston Children's (though some residents don't care or see this as an advantage).
Lots of fellows, strange set up of interventional.
some of the residents seemed too smart for their own good.
Boston was too expensive, too much hassle for me and my family. If I were single, I would have ranked higher. Residents didn't seem as hard working as some other top places, but that's probably an advantage for some people.
Terrible IR (look into it, it's truly f-'d up there). Boston is expensive and cold.
Nothing spectacular about this program like you would expect from the name.
Expensive cost of living (although red line commute is easy). Cold city. IR is this programs Achilles heal.
