Interview Experiences
Very good
intro by PD, 3 interviews, tour, breakfast is pretzels so eat something beforehand, 3 interviews, noon conf, lunch
weak training
Meet with the great, great and friendly PD, go on a tour and have lunch. Then there is a talk, 4 interviews and another tour.
Fun day at a beautiful and historic hospital. Everyone was extremely nice.
nice ppl. several interviews including one with the chief residents
Great PD (super nice). Great hospital to do an interview in, since you get a tour of a historic building!! You get to eat on a historic room. Get to see the first medical library of the US, and the first OR. It is the first hospital in the US, impressive.
I loved this program. One of the best interview days. Got a lot of time with residents and faculty members. A great feel for the program. Awesome dinner the night before.
Community program of UPENN, PD is nice and gives good advice during interview but asks some very private questions, residents seems happy,
Pre-interview happy hour is not a dinner, but light appetizers and drinks so plan on eating before or after. Interview day was very laid back and everyone is nice from the residents to the PC, PD, and department chair. No awkward/difficult questions.
Standard program overview with tour of beautiful historic hospital, 3 low pressure interviews (2 faculty, 1 chief resident), noon conference and lunch.
Somewhat uncomfortable interview
PowerPoint with PD 3 interviews, one with either the PD or APD, one with the Chairman, and one with a 3rd year resident. Very relaxed. Attended noon residents' conference. Lunch in one of the original colonial-era buildings of the hospital
Program Advantages
nice people
location, clean facilities, relaxed environment, happy residents, call isn't too heavy per the residents AND the program is expanding
Dedicated PD and faculty. Right in the heart of historic Philadelphia, in a nice neighborhood.
Beautiful, historic hospital in a great part of Philly. Fantastic PD and excellent attendings. Happy residents, great call schedule. Can park your car at hospital 24/7/365. Out rotations at CHOP for ped rads, HUP for cardiac imaging, trauma and GI fluoro.
Really cool history.
Faculty from UPenn and rotations at PENN.
nice facilities and in a great area in philadelphia.
In Philly if you want it. On a nice place of Philly (hisotric sector). Affiliated with UPenn, you get great teaching.
Perfect combo of world-class education, innovation, prestige, yet wonderful, wonderful people. HUP was one of my favorites! I felt that I fit in the best of almost anywhere here. I honestly could not say enough good things about this program.
in center city philly/nice area, worry if you see enough pathology since it is a community program/small hospital.
Awesome historic hospital with modern facilities as well Friendliest people I've met at any hospital One-on-one attention Residents rotate a lot at Penn and do Peds at CHOP Considered internal candidate for Penn fellowships
Association with UPenn, cool center city area
Young PD and assistant PD, very close atmosphere Connection to Penn Outstanding research and fellowship opportunities Location is right in the heart of Center City Philadelphia
Program Disadvantages
too small
can't think of any now
No night float. 'Q' call system.
Not a level 1 trauma center, but you do a month of trauma at UPenn.
Cost of living is high.
In Philly if you dont like it. Not a big program.
Wasn't first on my list because of my sig-o.
moonlighting is not allowed
Small program size might be a disadvantage if residents don't mix well Philadelphia not for everyone
Small class
None, strongly recommend ranking this program highly
