Interview Experiences
i liked richmond. i really wanted a UVA interview, but didn't get one. oh well.
Great up-and-coming program. Felt that in 5 years, may be better than UVA!
Well organized. Most interviews were laid back. 5 interviews I believe. Nice hospital.
awesome outing evening before interview
interviewed with three faculty and two chief residents. everyone relaxed and laid back. lunch and tour afterward.
Great relaxed pre-interview dinner. Helpful residents. Interviews were laid back. Sat in on noon conference with Cardenosa (big name in mammo, wrote the book). Still do hot seat at conference, and she was laying into the residents. Told this was not usual
Program Advantages
Close to DC, if you're into that kind of thing.
Friendly residents & PD Dept chair came and talked to us and she seemed very friendly - Mammo bigshot - cardenosa
Education. Happy residents.
incredible IR (do most vascular/neuro/vertebroplasty work in the hospital); residents incredibly happy; well-known faculty
up and coming, strongest department in health system, IR and vascular have good relationship, dedicated attendings, good facilities, Richmond has its pluses
Good size program (10) gives good cover for call. Has big names in Mammo and great abdominal imaging. Protective of conference room so no eating in noon conference, so you then get protected extra time to eat lunch.
Program Disadvantages
Department seems unfocused and stagnant.
Perhaps not the reputation of UVA but seemed like a solid program.
Little moonlighting (only contrast converage which is shared).
not many; hospital is sprawling and not the nicest
possibly Richmond, not research focused
Hot seat noon conferences still in place.
