of all the interviews I did, the Northwestern PD stood out to me. She was obviously EXTREMELY invested in her residents, and very enthusiastic. Furthermore, every resident I spoke with only had glowing things to say about her. She is the type of PD that will go to bat for you for whatever you need.... fellowships, research, etc. It sounds like a big plus for the program.

on a personal level, she is very friendly and disarming.... easy to talk to. She read all of our personal statements and came up to each of us to discuss something o rather about them.

While not having interviewed I have heard she is "too intense and labile" at times, and the residents are not friendly. I have heard this from a few people on the trail, which is why I turned down the interview.

I have never heard what Kfix said both during my interview and on the interview trail. I've only heard of great things about the PD at Northwestern. The residents love her and talk about her as an asset to the program. She calls fellowship program directors to help get them into the best programs. She is caring and really wants to help out her residents. In fact, when I went to my UPenn interview, a resident there said that their PD and Northwestern's PD are in a "class of their own" compared to other program directors.
