Interview Experiences
Wow. Won't regret interviewing here.
Very formal and well organized. Left a bad taste in my mouth like they were trying very hard to sell themselves as a good program.
Very formal and well organized. Left a bad taste in my mouth like they were trying very hard to sell themselves as a good program.
Friendly residents and faculty. Residents felt their autonomy at Ben Taub made them very well trained. Lots of foreign grads.
3 interviews - 1 with chief resident. Laidback. I was told that they submit your name to their rank list immediately after the interview (while interviewees are eating lunch).
Ranked #5
Very nice PD and residents. Good food. Ranked 1/20.
Interview with 3 faculty, tour the TMC campus, lunch with a resident, and attend a noon conference.
Great interview experience. One interviewer clearly hadn't read over anyone's application. PD is very charismatic and super nice.
Laid back and friendly. People were nice. PD is very enthusiastic
Really nice preinterview dinner at Rice Village, amazing mexican food for lunch, very impressive residents, well organized day, very impressive facilities, Texas medical center is amazing, great weather, Houston as a city very underrated,
Program Advantages
Houston is a cosmopolitan city; underrated. I ranked this program highly. Texas has an excellent economy - energy, aerospace, manufacturing, mining...
Part of TMC.
Part of TMC.
Seemed like an awesome place if you are interested in IR - definitely bank an impressive case load. Good moonlighting.
High volume. Houston has lots to do and is cheap. Moonlighting opportunities.
Good moonlighting
TCM, lots of hand-on experience.
Very well known institution. You get to train on the worlds largest medical center. Many fellowship opportunities in Houston to stick to one place. You get to rotate through incredible hospitals like MD Anderson and Texas Children's. Ben Taub will polish
TMC is amazing (MD Anderson, Texas Children's), the staff were all friendly that I met. All the residents loved the PD. IR experience is supposedly second only to Northwestern
The Texas Medical Center is an amazing place to train. Tons of autonomy at Ben Taub with some more 'private' experience at the other hospitals in the TMC. Known for their residents' abilities to hit the ground running after residency b/c of the high
Strong IR. TMC is awesome. Excellent moonlighting if wanted
very IR driven program (4 months straight),
Program Disadvantages
Primary hospital is Ben Taub (county), which is good and bad. Rotations at private hospitals seemed weak. Institutional problems at Baylor.
The residents were the most overworked I had seen, but said they were happy.
Very odd that the program director is from Puerto Rico and an unusual amount of residents also were from Puerto Rico. Also a large portion of IMGs
Heavy call.
Houston seemed pretty awful (tons of traffic, VERY muggy weather), they are starting to focus more on pushing research (NOT what I was interested in).
No resident room for those who care. Only two years with book fund (again not a big deal).
Worked hard it seems, but you knew your stuff
resident overworked but state improving with new faculty
