Good to know. Thanks. But, as a "U.S.IMG" myself, I wonder if this factors into the "used to have fmg's now does not" issue. Technically (or not-so-techinically), I am (or will be) an FMG.Originally posted by thegasman
I interviewed at mcg and it seemed like a decent program. Everyone I talked with was very nice and the residents seemed happy. They weren't working too hard and this probably isn't the strongest program, but not malignant from what I saw. The big problem comes down to location. Augusta is small and there is nothing to do. The only plus is that it is incredibly cheap. But it seemed like the program was on the way up, used to have fmg's now does not, now has a new chair from mgh, now is doing research, etc. I was also told that they only interviewed 70 -80 applicants. So a short rank list probably hurt them too. I wouldn't say it is a troubled program, someone from my class scrambled there, and I even ranked it #4 or my list.
