2. Raritan Bay Medical Center



Invitation Date: 10/20/2014
Interview Date: 11/07/2014
Location: Perth Amboy, NJ
Stress level: 2/10
Number of interviewers: 2

Relevant questions asked: Most of the interview was asking about medical scenarios and questions. If you haven't took Step 3 yet, you will be asked when will you take it. Other than that, just the regular interview questions.

Medical questions asked: Yes. ALOT.

Residents: Residents look unhappy and very tired.

In-house fellowships/Fellowship placement: None. I'm not sure about placements, nobody told us anything about fellowship placements and there was no time to ask in the interview.

What you liked most: Location.

What could be improved: Alot of things. The hospital isn't that good. 80h/week working hours! Also seems to have poor fellowship placements. Very poor work environment. No away rotations.

Interview rating: 1/10
Any other comments: Interviewed by and Faculty and the chief resident. Again, FULL of medical questions. After the interview, we recognized that all of us were told that we will be ranked highly.
