Hey Guys, Have a question. When you guys are evaluating programs and your "rating" of the faculty and residents don't match, what is more important to you? Example: the faculty seems solid, many years there, approachable, and likeable, enthusiastic about the program and learning. Then you meet the residents who maybe say they are happy there but you don't really like most of them and they don't seem enthusiastic. My thinking is that residents come and go but faculty stays the same. At smaller programs it wouldn't be as important because you as an incoming PGY-2 would be making up a larger percentage of the personality whereas at a bigger program you would be more likely to be overpowered/ overwhelmed by the current existing tone. Are faculty just better at faking and residents are too tired to fake it? Does this question make sense? Sometimes there seems to be a dichotomy between residents and faculty and I am having trouble deciding which is more important. Any imput would be great. Obviously, it is best when they match up but as I get farther down my rank list, #2 , it gets harder.
