"This was my first interview, so obviously I was nervous. My interviewer changed last minute (possibly due to the snow), so I interviewed with an MD from the Children's Hospital. But my interview was much more a conversation (which focused a lot on healthcare policy/ethics); still I learned a lot from the interviewer--very cool guy! The atmosphere in Cincinnati is very comfortable, and I hear that it's easy to live here. Many opps for research, teaching, education sounds solid." Report Response
