Interview Experiences
Awesome place
relaxed, friendly.
Residents seemed smart, but not dorky. Pleasant interviews.
This place just felt right for me. Every interview I had here was phenomenal. Your interviewers really put you at ease. They seemed very energetic and happy. Residents were intelligent, humble, and professional.
Awesome faculty and residents. Very low key and relaxed. Dinner was great. There was a resident for every applicant.
Fantastic! Small applicant group made it more personal. Associate PD gave me a hug before my interview as though we'd known each other for years.
Very laid-back, 4 faculty interviews and lunch
Interesting interviewers - 3 in total. 2/3 walked around hospital during interview. Short interview day. Nice, informal dinner the night before.
Welcome by PD and department chair. Three faculty interviews and tour by current resident. Closed-door lunch with residents. Very laid-back and conversational interviews.
Awesome, very laid back day. Walked around hospital on interviews, different style but liked it
Felt like the interviewers were really trying to get to know me as a person - like, 'I've already seen your CV. Let's talk about your personality and interests.' Really enjoyable.
Program Advantages
Integrated fellowship, great equipment/faculty/residents
Fantastic education: awesome lectures (the same who teach the Duke review course), and great read-out teaching by a suprisingly high percentage of attendings. Friendly but super sharp colleagues motivate you to learn more. 3/2 program allows time for re
Great program. Friendly faculty. 3/2 program integrates research time.
Like many of the top programs Duke is strong in almost every section. The education is fantastic. Helms of Brant and Helms heads the MSK section. Faculty are personable. Residents are on a first name basis with most faculty. Residents were very happy
Reputation. Combined residency/fellowship. Beautiful, affordable area. Very congenial environment. Built in research opportunities. Great group of residents and faculty.
Dept is extremely proud and supportive of the residency program. High expectations but relaxed atmosphere. Built-in fellowship with 3/2 program means smooth transition w/ new boards structure.
Awesome reputation in a friendly environment with excellent faculty Good cost of living
Wonderful residents. High volume, great education at a world-class institution in a nice part of the country.
Duke prides itself on resident education. Faculty members are all approachable and eager to teach residents. Duke pioneered the 3/2 program. Smart, interesting group of co-residents. Research opportunities abound.
Ranked #1
Fellowship at duke guaranteed
Lots of research, great residents, cheap cost of living, wonderful location and weather. Fantastic didactics.
Top tier reputation, that I felt was well deserved. Teaching and research ops are excellent. The culture emphasizes being clinically relevant and knowing the clinical decision making to be more helpful to consulting physicians. Built in fellowship means m
Program Disadvantages
Low education fund, no real moonlighting until fourth year.
Durham is a small city, with a rural feel.
Durham will be a disadvantage for some. The weather can be hot in the summer. The IR section is perhaps the weakest section. Otherwise, this place offers an amazing education without a lot of big city hassles.
'Hardworking', a lot of call.
I personally didn't want to live in Durham
none
Durham has good culture for its size, but it's not for people who want to live in a major metro area. Sounds like IR is not very hands on (fellows do the cases).
