Interview Experiences
OK
Nice PD. Nice people all around.
Really laid back, conversational interviews.
I matched at University of Rochester, not RGH, but for whatever reason that's not on this form
This is for the University of Rochester. Introduction by program director, followed by faculty interviews. While waiting for interviews residents come in and talk with students.
Super laid back; 4-15min interviews, tour and lunch. It wasn't as informative as some others
For the U of Rochester. Had more time to sit in a room then on other interviews. Residents seemed cool.
University of Rochester: Very very impressive program in an very underrated city, PD and chairman very friendly and impressive, resident seemed very happy, great newly renovated facilities,
Received interviews from both Rochester Gen and University of Rochester. Attended UoR interview.
University of Rochester
This is for University of Rochester
** Note: this is for the University of Rochester. Kind of an awkward interview format. After each interview, there is some downtime where you just go post up in the library with some of the other applicants, while a resident will come in and ask (the sam
Program Advantages
laid back, very friendly
People
Veryy friendly! Amazing hospital. Good sized program
Large program with 10 residents/year. Due to this programs large catchment area (basically all of Western NY and all of the referrals from the SUNY programs) this program has amazing pathology. Transplant and trauma are strong.
Residents are very happy, $1500 AFIP stipend + tuition paid, free health insurance, early autonomy, good fellowships for grads(Harvard, MSK @ UCSD), very resident driven program
Great place for families. Ave house price around 100K. Amazing fellowship placement. Good opportunities and policies for attending conferences. Very nice and prepared PD who is new.
Program run by private practice radiologists, so residents will get a good view of that worload/lifestyle.
wide variety of pathology, lots of research opportunity, very underrated
Great facilities -- newly done reading room which is truly impressive. you'll have to see it for yourself. Rochester is a cool town with a lot of rich history. Can find fun things to do if you seem them out.
Program Disadvantages
too laid back, probably not great teaching
Rochester, NY...enough said
Location (For some!)
Rochester is not for everybody. If married this is a great place to start a life. If single this place may be difficult. It is what you make of it. This is truly a great program that is hampered by its location.
No Peds, weaker in IR, in same town as Strong-Memorial which gets all the referrals
Limited pathology, no in-house pediatrics, seemed like a lot of call.
Rochester General Hospital program: Compeating program to University of rochester. Small community program run by private practice. Has struggled to fill its 4 seats the past 2 years. Nice PD. Resient seem to get along well. Not very academic.
half of the time during the interview day, either faculty, residents, or the chair were continually stressing the new boards format -- kind of like they were worried about it. this came off as peculiar, as they kept harping about it. a one or two sentence
