SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) From memory of interviewing, I would have to say this was hands down the UCSF residents. I remember the residents were worn out at the interview dinner (and late due to surgery). This program provides wonderful training (some may argue the best in the country), but I definitely think it is the most time-consuming, rigorous, etc. Any other programs where the residents work exceptionally hard (like surgery residents)?
