Interview Experiences
presentation, 3 interviews, lunch from cafeteria in conference room, Q&A with residents basically boiling down to how hard the call is here, tour of dept.
pleasant
Typical interview day with introduction by PD followed by 4 interviews with faculty. Have lunch with residents followed by quick tour.
college town location, near philly and nyc, resident seems happy with changes occuring at hospital, PD seems resident friendly, private practice group runs the residency program, some new facilities, negative is the program is downsizing
Nice day but too much idle time talking to same 2 chiefs waiting to be called out for an interview..inefficient use of time One interviewer asked me 'You go to a good med school w a strong rads program if you could get in there why wouldn't you just go t
Lot of time spent hanging out with residents INterviewed with Chairman, PD, and a nuclear medicine attending, asked about research on CV and interest in Radiology.
Program Advantages
strong hospital in NJ, good educational focus for med students and residents, PD is very nice.
University program near NYC area. Faculty seem nice and stress that they want applicants who want to be there and are realistic about who they get.
private group runs the whole system so you get a sense of how private practice goes and often they ultimately hire their own... Resident-run..you'll see a ton of cases and have alot of autonomy
Good fellowship opportunities Affordable, nice area to live in
Program Disadvantages
call seems too much for residents per the residents, they do not show you the second hospital
Residents did not seem too enthusiastic about program. Most residents come from UMDNJ system. Not much research for a uni program. - Not much in terms of research. From what we were told there are 'opportunities' to do research, but only one resident is
lost hospital, spun to be positive as resident take less call now, too much call was residents biggest complaint (but will they see enough pathology
name isn't stellar few residents/year (3-4) so lots of call heavy amount of UMDNJ kids interviewing and as residents
Less well known
