Interview Experiences
Presentation by PD or assistant PD, chat/tour with residents, sit with attending, 3 interviews (PD, Prof, Resident), dinner night before is awesome.
Great place
Excellent day. PD was hysterical in the way he interacted with various applicants. Very much enjoyed him, and the other residents: cool, laid-back, very nice.
great, beautiful experience
Pretty relaxed. This was my first interview. The PD is kind of odd and asked some weird questions. That said he is nice.
Pretty standard
PD is kinda strange but very nice. Chair is really nice. Dept is very cool. New hospitals are amazing.
Interview day was relaxed. Some of the interviews were a little strange.
Well organized. Plenty of opportunities it talk with residents. PD asks you about highschool and did not show any emotion during interview which is somewhat awkward. Currently updating dept
Dinner the night before was great! The residents are really laid back. 10 residents a year (2 IR direct, 1 research track). Coffee, and bagels in the morning. I had three interviews, each one was 20 minutes then a tour then out to lunch
Well-organized. Nice restaurants for both pre-interview dinner and lunch.
Some hard questions. Space-ship style reading room. Overall nice. Great dinner.
Dinner night before. Fairly typical interview day.
interview with 3 faculty and chief resident, pre-interview dinner and lunch day-of with residents
Strong radiology program
residents seemed happy but most were married so i dont think i would fit in. i think it attracts a particular type of applicant (married, ready to buy a house, etc)
Program Advantages
Very strong MSK, IR, and most other things. Residents are happy, very low cost of living, great research opps.
Charlottesville, Large call-pool.
IR, big on education throughout, big names
Big name people, especially in IR.
There are some big names here. Brant of Brant and Helms is here. The PD is also a huge proponent of education. C'Ville is a cool place in a very scenic area. Residents are intelligent and happy. Really cool neuro reading room. Great benefits.
Awesome research. Incredible hospital. Charlottesville is only 2 hours from DC.
Solid training -Big names
- IR here is great! - Large volume - Residents are very happy, not overworked, help each other out - Radiology department is being renovated right now - 2 residents on call overnight (upper level and lower level) - Brant of Brant and Helms is here -
Beautiful reading rooms with awesome equipment. Great training. Really nice IR suites.
Phenomenal teaching and reputation. Great facilities.
very nice facilities, large class so call more distributed, top-notch IR, MSK and others
Strong in IR, very collegial environment, radiology section being renovated, reading room is very open (space room!)
Ranked #2
cheap housing, charlottesville is actually quite quaint and cute albeit 2.5 hours from DC. great fellowships which usually fill internally. great outdoors stuff everywhere. IR is awesome
Program Disadvantages
Charlottesville might be too small for some, I loved it though. Under construction, but will be nice soon. Conf room smelled a bit funky, was not under the plans for renovation.
Busy hospital, overworked?
none
Old school, very hard working program (CT rotation there until 7-8pm everynight)
Residents stress how hard they work here. Call seems absolutely brutal. C'Ville is somewhat isolated. Overall, though a great place with few disadvantages.
Charlottesville isn't for everyone. Expensive city for the South.
Residents did seem tired - I have read/heard rumors that residents were overworked but cannot verify
- Didn't like Charlottesville. I need a bigger city (not married, don't have kids)
Only place I visited where it seemed like residents were highly stressed. Call rumored to be brutal. C-ville is small college town, but could be great for families.
charlottesville not for everyone, residents work hard (though not necessarily a disadvantage), not many disadvantages
charlottesville (?)
2.5hours from any major city. everyone seemed a bit too tame for me but whatever floats your boat.
