Default you decide!

Hi, from everything ive read, heard and seen, the most important thing is, where do you feel confortable, liked and where would you like to live for the next years.

Hey thanks for the input! I'll definitely consider that. I'm still confused between Lahey Clinic and Albany Medical Centre...as to which is a better program?

Hey! No that's the one thing I couldn't find anywhere. Not while there, and not online either. It's like no one wants to mention their fellowship placement lol. Which I don't get, considering it's a university teaching program you'd expect that they'd advertise it since they should have a good one.

what I have heard that the fellowship placment is not stellar. They menationed two residents failed to match in Hem&Onc. Also, I don't know if the lack of morinig reprot and the case presentation like noon conference are considered good. Overall, I am gonna rank it high, but not as I expected to be before the interview. Good Luck
