Interview Experiences
The best interview day of the trail. The best program on the trail that I attended. Everyone had read my application + essay. Great discussions, fun night before dinner, wonderful didactic.
Great, laid back 4 interviews, very chic restaurant the night before
Friendly
Relaxed atmosphere. Interviews mostly about getting to know you. Residents are all very happy with their experience at Mayo.
I loved Mayo. It is definitely a unique program.
Four interviews. Each person interviewed differently; one asking questions, one showing you the software they use, one answering your questions; very structured. Dinner was the best i had on the interview trail. They put you up at the Marriott.
Amazing facilities, really unique, strong program.
Three interviews. Nice pre interview dinner at a nice restaurant. Residents seemed nice. Workout facilites were ridiculously nice. This place is loaded. Ranked this place #3
Nice interviewers. This was my second interview and I think I probably came off really bad, but I guess it worked out alright. Great dinner the night before.
Breakfast and presentation by PD and fellowship director. Really nice faculty to interview with. Lunch with the residents and then noon conference.
Unreal facilities, amazing people, nice but small city
-four different interviewers, standard questions
Ranked #4

Program Advantages
The facilities are the best in the country. No exceptions. Work at your own pace
MOONLIGHTING, low cost of living-- can make lots of money as a resident! Plus absolutely fantastic personality of the program, really nice people. very education friendly, allows the residents to really learn without ever feeling like workhorses. Also
Good education, but seemed to be a little less hands-on. Probably more free time for studying and moonlighting than some other top places. Moonlighting even as 1st year rads resident. Time of for locums as 3-4 yr--HUGE PLUS.
This place is all about education. They have extensive teaching files and really value your educational experience. The volume here is very high and you will certainly see a diverse set of pathology. Teaching seems to be great.
1:1 teaching, numerous perks including facilities, they provide you a laptop and personal lead, Dan Ryan Healthy Living Center.
Best moonlighting in the nation (part of the curriculum). State-of-the-art facilities. Awesome call schedule and hours. Most perks of any program I visited.
Crazy moonlighting--5 weeks built in locums. Great perks.
Moonlighting was built into the curriculum. High volume with lots of crazy stuff. Have like 20 mris and cts or something. Large clas size and great reputation. Seemed like the residents werent responsible for pushing volume which could be a plus or mi
Great reputation. Most studies and faculty of all of the 186 or however many programs there are. Best facilities (although OHSU had a more beautiful campus). Relatively laid back. Great moonlighting. Super cheap cost of living. Give you a laptop. H
Moonlighting is awesome
Huge variety of path (you WILL see all the zebras), facilities are among the best in the world, cutting edge technology, along with really friendly people.
Great program, well rounded, volume, PP oriented with research still an option. Best department
-very strong 1 on 1 teaching and lecture series -plethora of cases and variety of pathology -best noon conferences of any program I saw -Residents were really nice, very smart, a few were even brilliant. -Opportunities abound, residents have staff who
Massive volume with probably the widest amount of pathology out there. You will see the zebras. Very nice facilities. Everyone seemed very nice and patient-centric. Runs very differently from other programs out there due to quick turn around of studie

Program Disadvantages
Rochester (if that's a down side to you).
Location! That's all!
Maybe less hands on than some (ie I hear you don't dictate in chest? maybe not a huge loss :).
Although I'm all about cheap living and having a nice house Rochester is a bit isolated. Nice restaurants are scarce and Mayo really is the best thing happening in Rochester. Also, if you're not used to winter weather be advised this place is cold!
The city is not for everyone. They do not have a peds fellowship.
Rochester.
Rochester. Only things happening seemed to be Mayo and IBM.
Im a single male. felt like going to Roch would be like joining the church in terms on my personal life. Even still I had this place at number one on my list until the day before rank lists were due.
Rochester, MN-not much going on here other than Mayo and IBM.
Rochester is rough in the winters, if you're single you may not have a lot of options to meet people unless you drive to Minneapolis.

Location is a kicker for many.
-I don't think the residents have enough pressure put on them to become fast and efficient. They will tell you that residents are not needed at this program to complete the worklist and procedures, which is true. They have a gargantuan staff and many fe
Residents seemed too protected - could be plus or minus. Rochester has little to do. Could essentially function without residents.
