"Dukemed website, read my secondary, SDN" -Posted 01/17/2005 | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The doctor who interviewed me was very friendly. We had more of a conversation than an interview. At first I was disappointed when all the on-site interviews were booked and I had to do a regional. In the end, it saved time and money, and I felt it went well." -Posted 01/17/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I received notice that I got an interview with Duke, and that same day I attempted to schedule an interview on-site, but they were all booked. Fortunately Duke has a regional interviewing program, and I got in touch with an MD who works in my area. He was very flexible in his scheduling, and we just met at one of his offices between surgeries he was performing that day. The interview was low-stress, straightforward. At the end, he told me I did well and I'd get his recommendation to the committee... we'll see if it all pans out." -Posted 01/17/2005 | Report Response
