Interview Experiences
Vandy is awesome. Happiest residents I met.
No breakfast so eat beforehand.
very friendly PD, residents were close and happy with training and overall experience
Loved it. #4 on my list.
Small interview group. Everyone was really nice. PD is kinda reserved but obviously cares a great deal about his residents.
Residents seemed happy. Program director was a little quiet, but still the interview wasn't bad.
Residents are very friendly
Small group of 4. Very laid back. PD is nice, but quiet. Residents were really friendly, some of the happiest I met.
Program Advantages
You will see and do everything here. Hospital has a family feel.
Nice campus, very well-funded department. Big name, well-connected and has its own radiology research building.
high volume, excellent attendings, great facilities; has a reputation of preparing residents very well for oral boards (one of the highest pass rates in the country I think). Nashville is a great place to live too
Nice happy residents and faculty. Great campus and equipment.
Beautiful campus, cool city.
Strong reputaion. Nashville is awesome city with tons to do. Good moonighting.
Solid program.
Great teaching, well-funded department. Good moonlighting. Traditional call which can be good or bad. Vandy is a big name.
Program Disadvantages
Old school?
Basically no research time. No night float.
'Old' feeling
Traditional call instead of night float which is a positive to some. It helps with the moonlighting.
No voice recognition yet.
Not a lot I remember
