I was just looking for any thoughts/advice/pros/cons of the two Chicago pediatric dental residencies: Children's Memorial Hospital (associated with Northwestern) and the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am very interested in pedo after dental school, but may be limited in my location choices. Any info is appreciated!

Members don't see this ad.
UIC - University based and accepts 6 residents (better odds)
Children's- Hospital based and accepts 2 residents (very small odds)

After not matching the first time around (2006 cycle), I worked in a largely medicaid office seeing 90% kids. It was an amazing experience that gave me the extra experience I needed to match in 2007.

If you have any specific questions, shoot me a message.
