Haven't interviewed yet, but will be in December. I'd love to hear about your experience with the program if you're willing to share. The program looks great from the outside looking in, but I have been wondering a lot about this program recently.
Hope you have been having a good interview season so far!
Doesn't seem like that's anything new. Every program wants its residents to pass the boards on the first attempt and match at competitive fellowships. Seems like this "pressure" just means extra resources and attention to make sure you do just that. I'd be all about that effort. I'd just be concerned that the attendings may not know the best way to do that at this point being that this is a new program.
interviewed there also in mid November. thought the program has a great image of where it wants to go, faculty were great, but didn't like the PD. not going to rank them, don't think I can work with a PD like that.
if you want to go into private practice to pay off your med school loans and live the good life, I think the program will set you up nicely. however, if you want to go into academics for fellowship and teaching, then I think u will eventually get a fellowship, but maybe not a prestigious one. at the end of the day its a private practice group running the show and from what I have heard people who are distinguished in academics don't think too much of people in private practice.
