I recently interviewed at Beth Israel Deaconess and really loved what I heard and saw. I feel like the program really might be a good fit for me. Had a few lingering detail type questions -- would be grateful for input from any current or former BID residents out there (I'm applying for prelim): 1. What exactly is short call (i.e. when do you start and stop admitting and do you have a cap)? 2. Is there any cap on # of admissions (including xfers) on long call days or cap on total census? 3. When you're in the unit, do you have a cap on admissions? Do you ever sleep? 4. What is being on call like when you're on oncology or cards? As busy as the wards? Are they good learning experiences? 5. Do interns dictate discharge summaries? 6. Can interns trade months if it's mutually agreeable? 7. What is the Ambulatory block? Do prelims do it? 7. There's scuttlebutt that the PD has been problematic. I couldn't really tell either way from interview day. Does she impact the program negatively at all or is it all just nasty rumors? 8. Is there anything you might have been reluctant from talking about on interview day that you think applicants should know? Thank you!
