Help Help me rank these 3 programs

- Richmond program, Staten Island, NY (no fellowship but affiliated w/ SUNY Downstate, Westchester, Metropolitan)
- Sinai Grace, Detroit, MI (no fellowship but affiliated w/ Detroit med. center, preference at Wayne state uni.)
- Uni. of Nevada, Las Vegas, NV (currently oncology only but PD said they're going to start other in 2-3 yrs)

My main concern is Fellowship (GI/Pulm/Nephro). I'm sure about my other top n bottom choices but I'm bit confused about these three. So please help guys. Thanking you in anticipation.

If you did your residency in University program like Nevada it will be easier for you to get fellowships when you apply later on because PDs prefer people who did residency in University programs more than those coming from community programs.

1-Nevada
2-Richmond (good area to live in)
3-Sinai Grace

Goodluck

Thanks ApplicantGuide! I heard that, too. But I don't understand the reason for that. I guess everyone thinks that community programs are always inferior than uni. programs...
