I'd go with a University over a community program any day, but that's just me.

Thanks!..I would do the same but Cook County is at Chicago and Toledo U at Toledo...Both have similar fellowship options...I am confused..My spouse is in software and there will be many opportunities in Chicago and hardly any in Toledo. I have heard Cook county is a good and big program. Number of residents at Cook county are > 30 while at Toledo = 12.

thanks guys for your useful comment. Can you please elaborate on why so, between Toledo and Cook County and between Macneal and Hurley.

Toledo, Hurley and Macneal has 12, cook county has moe than 30 residency positions
Pros of ToledoU: University program, well-funded, in-house research and fellowship opportunities, residents are protected and given time to study and do research.
Cons of ToledoU: the place itself, would be hard for my wife to find a job here as she is in non-medical field.
pros of Cook County: Excellent location, in-house fellowship opportunities similar to Toledo, well-known hospital
cons of Cook County: has a reputation of being malignant, work load is very high,

Similarly, Macneal is in Chicago while Hurley in Flint (bad location). Macneal is more of a private small program while Hurley is public. Here the program difference is not much so I would pick MacNeal above Hurley.
I basically want to know Toledo or Cook county?

Hey thanks for the response. Is there any particular reason why you would rank El Paso so far down on the list?

I interviewed there once for IM though. it feels like you're in the middle of no where. the program itself isn't bad (IM) don't know about Peds. If you're Hispanic or speak a good spanish then I think you'd feel comfortable there.

Hey folks!
I thought there was another official thread here:

  1. Maimonides, Brooklyn, NY
  2. Richmond University Medical Center, State Island, NY
  3. Mather Hospital, Port Jefferson, NY

Hi fellow members,
I would appreciate it if you could look my ranking below and see if you would make any changes? Location is not an issue, preference is for the best program among the list that offers good future prospects for fellowship or in general a good name for career down the road.

  1. Maimonides, Brooklyn, NY
  2. Richmond University Medical Center, State Island, NY
  3. Mather Hospital, Port Jefferson, NY
  4. St. Luke’s Hospital, Chesterfield, MO
  5. Berkshire Medical Center, Pittsfield, MA
  6. Raritan Bay Medical Center, Perth Amboy, NJ
  7. Meharry Medical College, Nashville, TN - Family Medicine

Thank you for your help!
