Interview Experiences
Good program. Friendly PD.
Very large hospital complex. Didn't feel I fit in with the residents very well. Not a fan of Pittsburgh.
One of my favorites.
3 interviews plus short talk with PD, tour, lunch, watch lecture. Great intro talk from PD
Ranked #7
Blew me away. I had high expectations of this program and it lived up to every single one. Great resident dinner the night before, everyone was very friendly and informative. The interview day itself was very smoothly run.
Good interview day. 45 min intro to Pittsburgh. Nice tour.
Easy. Relaxed. Tour of city afterward.
PD gives a great presentation on Pittsburgh in the morning and then 4 faculty interviews, lunch and tour
PD is very nice
Liked this program alot; attended a second-look. Very strong program director, great research opportunities.
Long day with a 2 hour bus tour of Pittsburgh made it a little painful.
Fantastic all inclusive PPT with very funny, down to earth PD. 3-4 interviews. Tour of main hospital plus driving tour of the immediate area, including some other hospitals residents rotate through- UPMC/Children's Hosp of Pitt, UPMC/Magee Woman's, UPMC
Interviewers seemed tired of interviewing and not interested in me. Really wanted to like it but didn't feel like I fit. Awesome dinner.
interview with resident, 2 faculty, PD and chairman. nice tour afterward.
Program Advantages
Reputation I suppose
Incredible program- huge volume claiming 2,000,000 studies/yr, diverse and rare pathology, strong referral groups, friendly residents who seem very happy, comfortable and well trained. Great fellowship and job matches. Pittsburgh is actually a very fun an
PD is one of the best in the country. Tons of volume for residents to read, great prep for private practice. Great research. Great fellowship placements and opportunities. Lively city
Great program. Plenty of pathology exposure and motivated faculty and PD.
Nice faculty and residents. Pitt is kind of a cool city.
Extremely high volume and diversity of cases I was impressed by Pittsburgh, seemed like a pretty good place to live
Seems as though residents work particularly hard here, but come out very well trained.
I really liked UPMC. The PD is really enthusiastic. I liked the city Pittsburgh much more than I anticipated.
Large program. Tons of research. Prestige. Arguably the most awesome part of Pittsburgh, smack dab in the middle of Pitt undergrad campus. Top 4 children's hospital in country.
lots of research, good facilities, good benefits, pittsburgh is a good place to live
Low cost of living
Program Disadvantages
Pittsburgh is the pits. UPMC is the only viable industry in this typical rust belt city.
None for me.
You work hard here.
Residents worked hard. Lots of weekends.
Call seems extensive and complicated. Have to work at multiple sites all over the city.
None. Residents work VERY hard with VERY high numbers of reads, may be a disadvantage for some. IMO, this place trains Radiologists for both Private Practice and Academia alike.
some people don't like pittsburgh, no night float
Pittsburgh, having to rotate through so many hospitals
Some people don't like Pittsburgh
