List Help in ranking these programs is appreciated

Ranked according to my preference (of fellowship opportunities>>gut feeling>>residents being happy):

1. Albert Einstein Medical Center, Philly
2. Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit
3. University of Louisville
4. SUNY Upstate University, Syracuse
5. Lenox Hill Hospital, Manhattan, NYC
6. St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Boston

I am certainly a bit reluctant to put "community" hospitals over university ones, and so would appreciate your help.

Thanks!

I know Albert Einstein and Upstate, both are great programs. 2,3 and 4 all can be interchangeable depending upon the cities, but all of them have good fellowship opportunities.
I have not been to Lenox Hill, but I have heard that residents are over-worked there. But since I do not know this info first hand, so I cant say this for sure.

Thanks. 2, 3, and 4- none of them are good cities! Choosing from the worst it seems!

Well Syracuse is a college town. So it has a different feel.
Louisville is the city of the great Muhammad Ali.
And Detroit once used to be the auto capital of the world. But now it feels more like a ghost town.

Nicely put. Since those 3 are a close call, I am prolly going for reputation. That is where Henry Ford wins above all.
