  1. Resident [Any Field]
Currently interviewing around the country (unable to visit due to coronavirus). Getting to know programs and faculty is really difficult now. I have heard rumors of some programs having awful training experiences and others having great.

Is there someone here willing to talk (even privately on telephone) about what they heard or know about programs, faculty, and the leadership? I have heard some fellows talk about some places they rotated at that had really poor experiences with faculty and described the experience. It was a big flag to me. Finding a good fit is really crucial for me and getting the most out of a fellowship year rather than just a piece of paper. However, I do not have this type of mentorship in my residency program and all I know is what the programs present to me.
