Anyone heard if UT-SW has finished offering interview invites? Seems like only one person on this board got an interview there...
how often do people get prematches in pccm. if offered one is it advisable to take it or go for match. i have some interesting interviews but also anticipating a prematch. so would u guys suggest i go for match or take the prematch.
interview invites from univ of tennessee, univ of texas houston, umdnj newark, drexel, univ of rochester
Hi I have been a quite watcher of the forum for a while.
I have got 14 invitations so far in clinically oriented programs which is eventually my career goal.
I have done 6 interviews so far and sent thank you emails to 3 programs already
Do they routinely respond back to these emails? and if they don't ( like my case) is this a bad sign?
my friend who matched last year in heme/onc told me he got so many responses to his thank you emails which worries me and I want to know if there is something wrong with my interview strategy so that I can save the rest of interviews
what are the statistical possibilities to match if someone goes to >10 interviews?
Hi. I am about to start my medicine intern year and am intending to apply to PCCM later. I have heard rumors that UCLA only accepts their own residents into their PCCM programs. Does anyone know anything about this rumor?
I had not heard that, and it would surprise me greatly if that were the case. UCLA's pulmonary and critical care division is very research orientated, arguably a top 10 place for basic science research in this area, and I can't imagine them not taking the people they think are the best applicants be they in house or from outside. Of course UCLA recruits some excellent medicine residents. It may just be that there's not some sort of bias for in-house people as much as in-house people have been very good candidates and as such have matched.
Top 2 are slam dunk for me but the rest are really hard. My number 3 spot is fluctuating between a really great program but not best location and a good program with great location and friends who live there/in program. This is hard. I think I will get good training at both.
I seem to be making decisions based on quality of life.
Some of the better (ie more prestigious programs) are way down on the list 2/2 location.
Is this stupid???
Any info on how others are ranking/deciding would be insightful.
I know lips are tight right now about programs, but what programs out there have good interventional training. I know where the fellowships are, but I have heard @ those places, the interventional fellows take the procedures. What other programs out there have good experiances?
Do you take into account names and "well known" the program is when you are ranking?
Do you think it is stupid to rank a place higher than another simply for this reason?
I have never gone to a "well known" program so I personally don't care but in the academic world will this be a deal breaker when trying to get a job?
Friends, I need your help. I recently got an email from a program that they cant find me in NRMP although I am registered there. Does any one of you have any ideas of what might be going on?
Its weekend and I cant reach NRMP hence m a little anxious. Any imput would be appreciated.
I know what you mean. I finally certified ROL but it was difficult. I had no problem with my number 1 and 2 but 3 on down was hard. I couldn't for the life of me decide who to put number 3. I finally decided on a program that is solid and gave a good vibe but does not necessarily have the prestige of other programs that I ranked lower on the list. Hopefully I get my number 1 or 2 so all this won't matter. Good luck everyone. Hope you all aren't going crazy like me!
What do you guys think about writing to the programs yourself about your interest in their programs as the programs are beginning to submit their rank order list. Do you think it will sound desperate as well ????
Also, if you do decide to tell someone they are number one, don't tell anyone but your number one that they are number one because that's a douchebag thing to do and could come back to bite you in the ass.
I did send an email to my number 1 and told them that after completing the IV process I thought they were the best fit for me and I would like to receive my training at their institution.
