Interview Experiences
Very good. Easy going. Friendly residents.
Great program! Excellent training and academic opportunities and would have been happy to have matched here.
really casual
I attended the 7 am conference prior to interview. It was very practical.

Friendly, laid back.
This place is kind of old school. Some of the people who interviewed me were quite ancient. UTSW definitely felt like a conservative place. This isn't necessarily a bad thing just different from what I'm used to. Interviews are generally relaxed.
several interviews.
The best interview experience on the trail. Faculty were so friendly and residents were very chill. Loved this place.
Really laid back interview day.
Not as intimidating as I thought it would be. Mix of both older and younger faculty.
Great facilities. Nice interviews. One interviewer was kinda wierd but not to bad. Tour guides showed us where Kennedy died.
Very friendly laid back faculty and residents. Low stress interviews.
Best dinner.
Dinner the night before 9:15AM-3:00PM Four 20 minute interviews
Very laid back. Nice faculty and residents
Everyone was really, really nice. Conversational and friendly interview. Missed the dinner but heard it was awesome.
Great!
Program Advantages
strong, large program
Awesome program. Fantastic pathology. Great attendings. Totally laid-back environment.
good teaching, good volume
Stable faculty. Well respected institution
Stable faculty. Well respected institution
Flexible, resident-run program. High volume, great path at Parkland. Awesome moonlighting.
Seemed to have a solid education, nice people.
Big name, nice people.
Residents were all very cool. Great moonlighting
Great clinical experience here. The residents seemed to be reasonably happy. Research is quite strong but it is not emphasized. Faculty really enjoy teaching.
great program. would have been happy to have matched here.
awesome facilities. several different places to train. good resident work hours.
Great moonlighting. Awesome hospital and they are building a new Parkland that is supposed to be amazing. Huge free-standing children's hospital. Dallas is one of the best cities in Texas (second to Austin). PD was great. Residents extremely happy.
Good reputation. Research if you want it.
Solid, large program with lots of exposure to pathology at Parkland.
Nice volume. Great reputation. Dallas was an awesome city. Moonlighting was great especially neuro. Call schedule seemed pretty reasonable. Residents seemed really happy. I ranked this place #1.
Great reputation. Only place where you get a lot of OB ultrasound/MR training. Lots of moonlighting. Effectively like 6-7 weeks of vacation per year. $500/yr book fund + paid AFIP + $2000 stipend for AFIP. Cheap cost of living.
Really liked this program. Great night float system.
Great Faculty, Nice residents
Great night float schedule with hidden vacation time. Radiology reading rooms were very nice. Good moonlighting. Very solid name. New Hospital coming in a couple of years. Would have been very happy to match here.
Larger program size (less call), outstanding research opportunities, new dept chair who has a vision, 2 new hospitals planned for the next 4-5 years, great moonlighting opportunities.
This program is awesome - great residents, great facilities, great faculty. Extremely nice and enthusiastic.
Program Disadvantages
Call can be difficult although not that frequent.
county hospital
Residents spread over many hospitals, high call volume.
Residents spread over many hospitals, high call volume.
No dedicated research time (although I think you can block some out if interested in academics).
The Dallas I saw while there was less than pleasant.
Call can be rough. Other services sound malignant. Not sure if this influences the radiology residents. Dallas is not for everyone.
equipment issues, but they are getting a new pacs system in place
The county hospital, Parkland, is old but has great pathology and is being replaced in 2 years anyway.
New department chair taking over. Not sure how that could affect the residency.
They seem to take mainly people from Texas and Louisiana which makes it rough as someone applying from out of the region.
Hospital is in a bad looking neighborhood. Otherwise no other negatives.
New Chairman maybe a disadvantage although I liked the fact he is moving in a research-oriented direction.
Everything's bigger in Texas.
I am not particularly found of Dallas, but like I said the people were awesome. Really liked this program
