Info SUNY Downstate IM program

Hi everyone
I have heard that the downstate IM program is malignant with overwhelming workload and a lot of scut work. Is there anyone from inside to tell us about it. That would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

I quite liked the program. It does have a lot of scutwork (blood draws, occasional wheeling the patient around, haggling the nurses to get the work done) but every single NY program is like that (I interviewed in just 3 NY programs). Everything is unionized in NY so it's difficult to fire people, I think that's why stuff never gets done properly.

If you are alright with that then this is a great program. It has an adjacent hospital Kings County which I really liked and also has a promising tie with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center not to mention the amazing fellowship opportunities.
