I'm very happy I matched at IU!I'm not a resident, but I'm an MS IV who has done two rotations there (one as a 3rd year and one as a 4th year). I feel IU is a very strong overall program, whether you want to go into academics or community practice. They have a brand new stand alone pathology building where residents park in the attached garage below it, and it is connected to the major hospitals via the People Mover (i.e. monorail) - you'll never need to move your car during the day. All of the hospitals are within a short walking distance. You see a huge variety of cases among all the different hospitals and a TON of frozens at University Hospital. The only down side to the program in my opinion is that there has been quite a bit of turnover in faculty recently (but all the quality ones are still there, including Dr. Ulbright who is AMAZING), and autopsy has very little if any forensics exposure. I will likely rank IU very high, if not #1.
Any specific questions?
this sounds like a great program!
Are fellows former IU residents? basically, are they taking more in house residents for fellowship?
