标 题: FELLOWSHIP INTERVIEW EXPERIENCE-1 COLUMBIA, NEW YORK PRESBYTARIAN
发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Tue Jan 5 18:02:13 2010, 美东)

can't type any Chinese now. So just bear with me:
IV day: 8:50am to 3:00 pm
# of interviewer: 3
Accommodation provided:No
# of applicants interviewed in one day: 5
# of positions: 5
Clinical: Busy first year. 7-week on call in the first year. 3 half days
every week for out patient clinic, and in-patient care dependent on
different rotations. 3months' rotation at Harlem hospital, and 1 month
rotation at Bronx VA hospital. Pt population largely Dominica Republicans.
Excellent didactic sessions.
Authority: good. fellows are THE doctor of paptients. Excellent continuity
care. Helping hands: NP.Residents and attendings.
Research: excellent opportunities for basic science and also almost to same
degree for clinical science. Big names of breast cancer, prostate cancer and
bladder cancers (Dr. Ramon Parsons, Richard Baer, Carlos Cordon-cardo, etc)
and a lot of collaberations. NIH designated centers for clinical trials as
well. Huge opportunities if you want to do translational or basic research.
Neighborhood: looks not nice. But I am not sure about it.
Moonlight: not encouraged, but not prohibited either, on call day $50/hour
for extra working hours.
FLOWs: extremely happy. it seems if you survive first year - which you can -
, then things get better. you can decide if you want to do hem/onc or just
onc.
Facilities: Herbert Irving cancer center is amazing. And the New York
Presbytarian Hospital is HUGE.
Mentorship: strong.
Flows destination: 50-50 PP vs. academic in the previous few years, but the
job marketing is getting slow as the health care reform is taking place.
This year 4/5 will go to academic area.
Interviewers: excellent.
PDs: excellent, very very smart and sharp.
Overall score: 8.5/10

I figured out why green card is so important for fellowship application,
because in order to apply for NCI grants(which most of academic Hem/Onc
fellowship programs like to see), the fellows need to have green cards at
least.

yes, a lot of fellowship programs are in NY, I think there are around 25.
I heard about the unfilled issue from studentdoc forum, maybe because they
didn't rank the interviewees who were below the ninth on their list.


Oh, by the way,the question asked during the fellowship interview were
totally different from those asked during residency interviews. I felt I was
doing my PhD thesis defense. They asked so many details about my research,
especially basic research, signalling pathways, and they were sooo sharp
that they could pick the tiny little thing which was not accurate, and of
course they would know from even one minute's talk whether you did something
meaningful, or you were just bragging about something you were not sure.
I was reading my 178-page thesis like crazing before I went to interview,
and I printed out the discussion part and brought with me to the interview,
And I was still sweating when I was talking about my research. Some
interviewers asked about whose labs I come from, and what research my boss
did, and what my boss' boss did. It's tougher than my postdoc interview. The
funny thing is that the academic world is still small, quite often the PIs
know each other, and they transfer from one place to another too.
There is no single general question, and nobody talked about my USMLE scores
. At least two out of three interviewers didn't open my profile before they
saw me. None of them read my letters of recommendation. But all of them read
about the list of the papers my PHD MENTOR published. And they just filled
the review form in front of me right before the interview finished.
I don't know if this kind of interview only happens in Columbia, I will keep
you guys updated.
