Interview Experiences
Residents seemed very happy.
Residents seemed very happy.
Very friendly residents. Nice facilities. The TMC is massive.
Ranked #4
PD asked tough questions I thought... other than that, nice place; really impressed with Texas Medical Center
several interviews and a tour. nice residents and attendings.
Having rotated at this institution, I felt the interview day didn't really do it justice.
Standard day. Two or three faculty interviews. Residents seemed pretty cool. PD was kinda scary during the interview, but really nice otherwise. Dont know if she was messing with me or not. Nice facilities in a huge city.
Fairly standard interview day. Pre-interview dinner they had SO much food!
Happy Hour arranged by the residents the night before 7:30AM-2:30PM Interviewed with the PD-she had me find Waldo, watched to see how I scanned the book then asked 'Why did you think I had you do that?'
Laid back day. Didn't talk with PD personally, but seemed nice. Chairmen seemed very nice. Faculty and residents were nice and happy
Very very impressive program, PD, PC, chair were nice and well spoken, preinterview dinner was nice, resident were some of the happiest on the trail, Houston is a great city,
Impressive facilities. Awkward interview with Dr. Oldham.
Program Advantages
Awesome program, amazing moonlighting,
strong mid-tier program; affiliation with MD Anderson cancer center provides some amazing experience for the residents
TMC. Residents had a lot of fun,and enjoyed work. Good placement in fellowships/jobs.
TMC. Residents had a lot of fun,and enjoyed work. Good placement in fellowships/jobs.
Great ER/Trauma exposure. MD Anderson experience is unique and a major plus. Great moonlighting opportunities. Cool residents.
rotate thru MD Anderson; the main hospital is also huge and very nice
huge academic center. several different settings to train.
Large, solid program. PD has been there for years. Located in the TMC, with rotations at MDACC.
Large class, lots of hospitals to rotate through. Supposedly one resident bought a porsche with all the moonlighting money he made. MD anderson seems pretty amazing and offers a ton of opportunities to see some rare stuff.
Pretty solid name and training. Largest medical center in the world. Best moonlighting of any place I went. Something like 4-5 weeks of vacation/yr. Nice weather.
TMC is a huge complex. You will see everything here for sure. Get to rotate 12-15 months at MD Anderson which is amazing. Good moonlighting. Overall a very good program.
Texas medical campus
Texas medical center is impressive with Methodist hospital, Texas Childrens, MD Anderson, Herman, LBJ, VA. Great research opportunities with MD Anderson, would have ranked #1 if not for family.
You get to do IR and rotations at MD Anderson. Awesome experience - althought I'm not sure what the PP exp would be like coming out of MD anderson.
Program Disadvantages
Call volume was high between all of the hospitals the residents had to cover.
Call volume was high between all of the hospitals the residents had to cover.
Some said call requirements were heavy.
Too many hospitals to rotate at for me. Felt like there would be a disconnect between the residents because of this.
Not too many that I recall.
Houston for some, busy city, lot of traffic, bad weather
Dr. Oldham's interview was a little distant, but she told us that was her method. Finding Waldo was a bit of a boiler room technique.
