I'm a long time lurker but your situation seems very similar to mine so I finally decided to join this wonderful and helpful forum.

I interviewed at:
1. University of Nevada - Las Vegas
2. U of I - Urbana champaign not UIC
3. Henry Ford Medical Center
4. Griffin hospital
5. U of I - Peoria not UIC
6. Raritan Bay Medical Center
7. Flushing Hospital Medical Center
8. Mercy hospital medical center

Mine are all internal medicine as well. My preference is mid west, Michigan to be exact so Henry Ford is high on my list but I also liked Peoria and Vegas but those programs seem very competitive. I didn't get a interview from Oakwood Hospital, wish I had considering its in Michigan. If you don't mind can you share your credentials and also what is the UIC program?

Thanks

I rotated at Griffin hospital, I would put them at the bottom unless you are doing their MPH program. There fellowship rate after is literally non-existent, a lot of attendings dont want to be there. The residents are not the well trained. Any decent residents are prelim not categorical ones. Their EMR is only used in their own hospital. THeir facilities are great. OHH they interview everyone, last year was close to 350+ so there is no proper selection process.

I am not sure how to distinguish between the 2. I like peoria better because of the city size. It is much bigger, so more pathology, more things to do in downtime.

Hi. Any particular reason that you guys have ranked University of Illinois, urbana at the top. I have interviewed there but I don't know how to rank this program.
