Posted:Well, last night, I had the great pleasure of meeting Spitfire, Spritie, and Mand. Thanks so much to all three of you luuuuurvely ladies for showing a poor Midwestern boy a fun night on the town. hug (Photos of the group spin are forthcoming). As far as the night went, first, we went to sushi (Mand was a sushi virgin) and then the girls took me to a local gay bar so that Spritie and I could ogle the boys and so that Mand and Spitfire could be amused.

The interview at Baylor went well. I've added up the plusses and minuses of the program:

PLUS
Major powerhouse pediatrics program. Ranked #3 nationally.
Amazing facility.
Amazing amount of subspecialties and referral patients.
Great city.
Many Spanish-Speaking patients.
Amazing adolescent medicine training

MINUS
Residents seemed haggard, run-down and greatly overworked.
Computer systems outdated and not well-integrated for orders or patient records.
Hospital director seemed a bit...slick.
Very high-volume hospital with high patient-to-resident ratio. On-call resident responsible for 36 inpatients.
Very little autonomy for residents.

All in all, I'm afraid I won't be ranking that program very highly because it looks like the residents suffer there. frown

Posted:frown I'm sorry the residents at Baylor seem way overworked. I wouldn't want to be working in that type of environment either. But, it would have been cool to have you in Houston.
