Interview Experiences
One of the best interview experiences on the trail - the chiefs were phenomenal as was the PD. Really liked the group I was interviewing with.
Extremely friendly residents and faculty. Lots of downtime in between interviews.
attendings were very friendly; residents were sociable and nice
Best pre-interview dinner!!
Program paid for hotel. Little interaction with newer residents because they were taking a physics test.
Great dinner-prob my favorite resident group. 3 interviews, laid back. Program paid for hotel room.
One of my best interview experiences. The PD and residents were some of my favorites so far.
3 interviews, one with a chief, 15 mins ea. Interviews were informal and residents were friendly and went out of there way to welcome me.
My favorite resident group - seemed interested in selling the program. Great dinner. Really good noon conference. 6 residents/yr.
happiest residents I've seen.
Program Advantages
Knoxville, Hybrid academic/community program.
Nice transitional year. Cool college town if that's your thing.
Impressive benefits, strong moonlighting. Board scores and fellowship match seemed well above average. Great PD - updated curriculum and physics schedule for new core exam.
Unique program. Seemed much more academic program than hybrid, although attendings are apparently part of own group instead of hospital employees. Residents seemed normal and happy. They talked a lot abt quality of life which seemed good. Lot of resea
The prog director is well-connected and talked a lot abt the new curriculum. Call/nights seemed very doable (9-10weeks of float as a 2nd yr then done). Good moonlighting. Lot to do in Kville.
Great IR exposure. Incredible facilities. Lot of opportunities and funding for research (dedicated research PET/CT).
facilities, volume, moonlighting, benefits
really good fellowship match, facilities, IR is hands-on, lots of procedures if you're into that, collegial environment, trauma/transplant center
Program Disadvantages
Not a lot of research.
Weird call system - one week of nightfloat every month for your entire second year.
the medical center is small and all the attendings are in private practice and just affiliated with the University; b/c of this it seemed like the medical center had problems implementing hospital wide policies and things were a little disorganized
College town if that's not your thing. Got the feeling that the residents were worked to death and not very happy. Other applicants aggreed with this observation.
Still take regular physics tests. Have not really changed curriculum for new boards yet. Lots of orange in this town.
No fellowships - although this may not be bad, esp for IR
none
