Interview Experiences
mostly weird
Not too bad. PD weird.
Interview day well planned Very enthusiastic PD Ample opportunities to ask current residents questions about the program
I ask the same question to every interviewer and, for what it's worth, the PD at Columbia gave the most thoughtful answer.
Good, laid-back, well-organized day
Ranked #3.
well run
Nice people, easy interviews
Most fun pre-interview dinner on the trail. The residents work hard and play hard. Actual interview was middle-of-the road. PD and associate PD are super nice. 3 x 20 minutes.
Organized and easy going interviews. Pre-interview dinner was extremely fun. Could have invested a little more effort in their interview presentation/day. (I.e a formal introduction to the Chairman and Program Director and a more descriptive folder of inf
Program Advantages
name, some research opportunity, overall strong institution
Columbia name. NYC
Faculty Equipments Fellowship opportunities
Large open reading room (some ppl may not like this, but I did). Great clinical training (not as cush as some of the other NYC programs). So if you're not into working hard, don't come here.
Strong reputation. The hospital does everything, so there are lots of interesting cases to learn from.
very very committed to changing for the better by recruiting big shots at other ivy league places PD is super nice & friendly Columbia is fantastic in all fields of medicine Just recruited head of IR from Sinai to take over and make Columbia better
Decent location in NYC!
-Strong academic reputation -Improved call schedule: q16 2nd and 3rd year -One of the best hospitals in the country for most specialties
Great location. Very easy access to the (A) line which means you have a lot of housing options on the west side. New chairman who has been making substantial improvements. Several new scanners coming over the next few years. Recent acquisition of Sinai's
Program Disadvantages
funding, overworked residents, program director
Morningside heights. Not as strong as NYU or Cornell but they think they are amazing.
Older facilities, but still great equipment. Alot of remodeling of the deparment which could be good or bad depending on what stage you end up here for.
Residents did not appear happy there. If you look at a map, 168th Street makes it almost as far uptown as Montefiore.
Lots of change translates to high risk w potential for high reward but also shaky... Its name in rads is truly not great (probably worst name out of big 5 in NYC (sinai, cornell, nyu, montefiore, columbia))
Residents work very hard. Crappy facilities.
-Not the best location of the NYC programs -Rough call first year (q8 baby call) -Crappy facilities
The subsidized housing is not in an ideal location. Program has a distant history of having issues, but people on the trail or on forums blow this way out of proportion (the pre-interview dinner easily convinced me that the residents were very happy with
