How would you rank the following FL residencies:
University of South FL
University of FL
University of Miami
What is the order you would put them in, how is their reputation both in FL and nationally?

This question was just addressed (see Florida categorical IM programs). Basically:
1. UF (the only one with any great national prestige)
Mount Sinai could be #1 or #4 depending on what you are looking for. It is a community program, but has excellent lectures and attendings. They have a cardiology fellowship and a few rotations at Jackson Memorial (UM) where you can meet people. It is a much less malignant (call it even intern/resident friendly). It is well-known in Florida, but not outside except maybe for cardio and infectious disease (Dr. Ratzan, program director and past president of the ACP-SIM).

I'd rank UM over UF!!!! UF program is under probation for one thing! UM is like Grady (Emory), if you survive UM, you'll survive anywhere.. Fellowship placements are incredible. and finally, its Miami for heaven's sake... a great nightlife (beats Gainesville anyday!)

miami isn't like emory....the faculty are much poorer, the training is terrible, and the support staff is even worse at jackson than grady (this from a resident at miami who went to med school at emory). true miami is much nicer than gainesville, and you will see more pathology at jackson than at shands, but training is completely incomparable. florida's attendings and residents are much better quality than miami. florida is on probation, but they should be off soon, they've fixed their work hours thing. plus, work environment at shands is much nicer, relaxed, calm....and english-speaking...
im2003 is right about mt. sinai...if you want to go to a community hospital program, it's one of the best...right on miami beach, wealthy hospital, but still does some research...residents do rotations at jackson, fellows from jackson come over to mt. sinai sometimes for rotations...but still a private hospital, so don't get as much autonomy as in a university setting, and fellowships would be much harder to get (nearly impossible outside the florida region)

I have a buddy who loves Mayo-Jacksonville. Why is it so unpopular?
