Default Weiss Memorial Hospital in Chicago

Hi everyone,

I interviewed at Weiss Memorial in Chicago, and I discovered while I was there that they are prematch only.
I didn't know it, because in Freida and in their website they say they are in the match.... so, for the ones who were wondering....
I contacted Freida to let them know too.

Good luck everyone with your interviews!

It's a relatively small community program, but faculty members were nice, so were the residents. They offered some breakfast and lunch. The hospital is really nice, they have a very well known orthopedics department.

We were probably 8-10 people.
The PD made a presentation about the program, we were then divided in 2 groups: one started the IVs right away, the other the hospital tour. We did the tour with one of the residents, who was really nice.
I was interviewed by 2 faculty members, very nice people, they asked about myself etc, no wierd questions.
We then had a lunch with some of the residents at the cafeteria.
