New PD, trying to implement many good things in the program but the number of faculty is very small as compared to residents... follows ACGME so training should be equivalent to other programs! what do u think about it?

Yea its a new program and the number of faculty is very small. The only thing concerns me is appropriate patient exposure. Compared to other programs i think it lacks a lot of things. And there no chances of fellowship afterwards. But the pd is very excited about running it and putting in a lot of new things. So I am not really sure

the patient exposure, to me, seemed okay because of the area and the patient population is also diverse...
but no research and residents also didnt seem happy!!!
how did u feel about that?????

Yea thats excatly my point. There was only one resident who was sayin good stuff abt the program and i think its cuz she was tld to do so by the pd. most of the residents didnt seem happy. The out patient clinic was totally empty and was under construction. Only ER had electronic records. So how did u feel abt it over all?

it wouldnt be my first choice ofcourse
it has a lot hispanic patient poplualtion and i dont know a word of spanish so i dont know if they offer any training in that or not...but again the same things.. how can u interact with too little of a faculty and expect anyhting that you need to happen there!!!
but it is in chicago (where im from) and for that reason it will be in the middle of my list, otherwise it should be lower on the list!
what are your plans?
