Interview Experiences
Friendly
fantastic. everyone really friendly and down to earth and make an effort to get to know you.
A lot like Hopkins (selection chair is son of previous PD at Hopkins). 5-6 10 minute interviews. One or two seemed a little antagonistic. Great dinner. Smart residents.
6 15-min interviews with 4 faculty and 2 residents, pretty relaxed
Strong program, great location!
identical to hopkins, very chill, dinner was best anywhere (zagat 28!!!)
6 short interviews.
Ranked #2
Program Advantages
Robust clinical and research opportunities; dirt cheap cost of living
it's penn! fantastic reputation, philly is a fun city, great people, lots of opportunities.
Reputation. Strong departments and fellowships all around. Direct IR track and Research track. Strong research. Arguably one of the best rads programs in the nation.
Amazing reputation Great faculty
PD was very nice, residents seemed happy. Definitely a world-class institution. Strong in Radiology and in other clinical departments as well.
Lots of great programs/perks within, best resident IR experience, tons of research, Ranking #1
amazing didactics w/2 week research course, 1/2 day weekly research time, CHOP, casual atmosphere, resident IR suite, great PD. Ranked #1, matched elsewhere though.
most Resident-centric program I visited. Amazing IR rotations for residents. Special tracks for different interests. Specialized didactics. Rotate at CHOP (#1 peds hospital). Research is huge. Very little call.
All around crazy strong. World renowned name in radiology. 'Family' feel of residents and faculty. One of my favorite PD's (Scanlon). Seemed to want to know you. Extremely focused on your education here. Would have been very happy here.
Elite training
