Interview Experiences
awesome
info session w PD, very nice. two interviews, tour, conf
A lot of downtime Very friendly PD Friendly interviewers/residents
Brief introduction to the program by PD, followed by resident presentation. Interviews with 2-3 faculty. While waiting talk with residents and go on a tour. Interviews are 20-30 minutes and very relaxed.
It was too long. Very good lecturer. Nice PD and PCoordinator. Great hospital with great reputation.
Wonderful, but didn't expect less. A top research institution in NYC. Appreciated the smaller interview size and the real effort to make sure interviewees met a broad spectrum of residents. PC was extremely nice as well. Good lunch. Slightly disappointed
Somewhat offputting. My interviwer stopped my interview 3 times. Twice to take calls and once to meet with someone in the middle of my interview
Decently organized
Super casual interview day. Had to wait a long time in between interviews. Seemed like many of the interviewers were busy with their clinical work.
Program Advantages
location, teaching, pathology, subsidized housing
Great fellowship opportunities Great location
Amazing Manhattan location in the Upper East Side. Mount Sinai is a beautiful hospital and has a world-class reputation. Strong IR, one of the best in the Northeast. Great research opportunities and excellent teaching. Loved this place.
In NYC if you like it. Excellent location on 5th ave right next to Central Park. Very strong IR department.
Upper East Side in Manhattan is an awesome location. Provides subsidized housing. Strong IR and neuro. Got a strong sense that the residents jive well with each other as well as with attendings (more so than at other places)
Residents were laid back and cool. The attendings I interviewed with seemed really cool, too, although I saw them looking over my app for the first time right before I came in (they changed both of my interviewers after I got my first schedule). Ppl from
Sinai is already spectacular, but is clearly taking steps to make it more competitive in the area. Strong, mostly younger faculty. Beefing up its body imaging section, which was previously a weakness (according to residents).
Strong overall hospital in multiple fields means great learning opportunities in the reading room. Nice Manhattan location right along Central Park. I really liked the PD. The residents were especially down-to-earth and visibly happy to be there.
subsidized manhattan housing
residents seemed pretty good at taking cases at conference VERY strong IR (perhaps best in northeast) but IR chief just left to go to Columbia... nice attendings great location in NYC Residents happy
Nice subsidized housing. Located on the east side of NYC (if you prefer the west side this may be a disadvantage). Friendly residents. Strong Interventional radiology presence.
Program Disadvantages
Night Hawk system during night float hours, but residents say that it does not impede training so maybe not a disadvantage? Not a level one trauma center.
In NYC if you dont like it. No trauma.
Trauma is relatively weak as Sinai is not a level 1 trauma center. No moonlighting.
No overnight US tech, so you will get good at scanning transplant pts. You aren't responsible for CTs at night (they have a night hawk for that). That being said, they are very busy on call.
Not any off the top of my head. Program recognizes its weak points and tries to correct. Slightly smaller than other academic programs if you are looking for a large class.
Despite its strong name in the Northeast, unsure of its reputation out West. We will see, come fellowship match.
A little overrated just bc of its location Pediatrics is slim to none over there MSK is decent NYC is supersaturated w programs & other good hospitals so you don't get the volume & diversity you need for good training
No university affiliation. Weak research potential outside of IR. Residents get little (currently no) exposure to reading CT's on call bc they use a NightHawk service. I thought this was a red flag. Facilities seem subpar (except for their mammography are
