Interview Experiences
This is an EXCELLENT program and was very high on my list. Outstanding training opportunity with great faculty. Albuquerque seemed like a neat city.
I'm not a big fan of the 1-2 applicant per day approach. Spent half the day at the VA, first one I had ever been in. Residents were very affable and happy.

Very friendly.
Very friendly an laid back. Only 2 people interviewed per day, so it had a personal feel.
Super friendly and they interview 2 people per day, and you don't really encounter the other applicant.
Well organized. 4 interviews I believe. I did not feel I had enough time to talk with residents.
1 to 2 applicants per day, chairman was intimidating
Interview one person at a time! Had the morning session to my self. Program coordinator was fantastic. No dinner night before. Dept chair REALLY wants you to be yourself in interview - pretty cool.
interviewed with four faculty and one interview/tour with a resident, relaxed
One person interviews in the morn, one in afternoon. Pretty chill, want to know why you would want to be there.
I had the interview day all to myself. Everyone was very nice, and all of the interviews were laid back. I am sure this program will end up very high on my list.
Very happy and hard working residents, which is a rare combo. Maybe it's all the sunshine.
Program Advantages
Built in internship.
Built in internship.
Catagorical program so you don't waste your intern year as a slave to some IM program--huge advantage. Seemed to have good education.
No intern year
Sweet categorical year (only have to do like 3-4 months of clinical rotations 1st year). Solid program. Decent moonlighting. Super cool residents and faculty.
Very unique categorical curriculum. 2 of the residents seemed happy
unique categorical program, do a lot of radiology PGY1 year
The best intern year in the country for a Rad resident. Sunny place with lots of outdoor activities and mountains close by.
Nice Facilities
Built in intern year!! I ranked it highly on that fact alone.
5-year categorical program - tons of rads in year one! Staff and residents were pleasant.
nice facilities, good benefits, start radiology from day 1 of PGY1, clinical months are during PGY3 4 and 5 and are geared towards being radiology consultant, Albuquerque has great weather, lots of outdoor activities, family friendly
IR, 5 year categorical program which is a huge selling point.
The integrated program is a huge deal! The residents were very happy and seemed to really like the city.
Program Disadvantages
New to PACS.
New to PACS.
Relatively high crime rate of city. Rather small program. Kind of low base pay.
One of the 2 residents I talked to said limited research opportunities - can't say for sure if that is accurate or not. Cafeteria was dumpy with poor food selection. Program kind of has a unique vibe- can't really put my finger on it though.
albuquerque not a very safe or fun city
ABQ isn't for everyone.
Program undergoing changes, new PD X2 in past year.
Albuquerque - some may love it, I couldn't see myself there for 5 years.
not a research powerhouse, Albuquerque could be a turn-off to some, not a whole lot of disadvantages
