Interview Experiences
This place also has a lot of interviews. There were eight 15 min interviews. All of the interviews are pretty chill.
The program is very strong, and the people were all very laid back but serious about their jobs.
Outstanding atmosphere, tied for #1 with Duke in that area in my book for the programs I visited. A lot of interviews (8), but they weren't painful--got along well with interviewers and really enjoyed talking with them all.
8 interviews, the most I experienced. The day was long, but I liked it. The chair reads a little bit about every applicant from their LORs or application, to the whole group
Probably the friendliest faculty I met. Really nice pre-interview dinner.
Very formal interview day; Intro by PD and department chair, 7-8 interviews with residents/faculty, research presentation, very nice luncheon, and (optional) tour of Harborview.
Dinner was great, lots of time for mingling and asking questions. Tons of interviews but well-organized and brief. Dr. Beauchamp was a hoot and the PD was beloved by the residents.
Worst interview day experience here
Program Advantages
Great education, strong reputation, especially in west. Cool city.
You will receive amazing clinical training here. This is as rigorous as it gets in radiology. Harborview will be a hardcore trauma experience. Research here is also quite strong in most areas. Seattle is one of the most scenic cities in the world.
Variety of pathology at several different hospitals. All fellowships available. PD seems very resident-friendly. Also seem interested in taking residents from all parts of the country.
Seems like an especially great place to train as a female. Seattle is a great city.
Amazing location with great hospitals and high volume Great faculty Great residents
Seattle rocks. GREAT training. GREAT program name. $1500/yr book fund.
Very academic program. High quality residents. High volume and diversity of cases (due to UW covering a huge geographic area). Great trauma rads department. Seattle is a fun (although gloomy) city.
Crazy good clinical training. World-class research. Amazing city if you are into the outdoors.
Program Disadvantages
Expensive, no moonlighting, pay not commensurate with cost of living.
Residents were less than enthusiastic about their experience at UW. Teaching may not be as strong here. UW takes more of a learn by doing approach. You are spread out mainly at three different hospitals. Conferences are broadcast so you don't see your
You have to travel to multiple locations without parking provided at all of them.
i'm not a big fan of having to work at a number of different sites
Kind of isolated, even though Seattle is one of the best cities in the US High cost of living
Multiple different hospitals to rotate at. Worked more hours than other programs. Semi-expensive cost of living. Maybe pushed research a little too hard.
Very de-centralized. Multiple rotation sites spread across Seattle.
Spread out sites. Lots of call. The only place where residents continually emphasized how bureaucratic the institution was. No NBA team.
