    Pros

    Really great faculty that are dedicated to your training. Many have come from this very program so they know the deal and how to improve.

    Cons

    None... about the same as what you would expect for the amount of work in a general surgery residency. It'll be tough, but of all of the programs nationwide, it is one of the best in terms of life and lifestyle along with training.

    Pros

    Great benefits, state of the art medical facility, about to move to another department without issue.

    Cons

    Culture at the outlying facilities, very cliche-ish, uptight managers, hard to gain trust, buy in among staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to get along for the sake of the employees or cut those individuals who do not represent the Methodist values of ICARE. Infighting.
