List of Crappy Gross-horse programs
This list is more than overdue.
If you know of a program that is known to be a glorified gross tech training program, list it here so people will know to avoid it and to scrutinize its trainees as being unprepared for practice. If you don't want to come right out and say it, PM me and I will list it anonymously.
If you can, add the estimated percentage of FMG/IMG residents.
Listed as avoid (probably should be shut down):
UMDNJ-RWJMS in New Brunswick, NJ (residents don't do diagnostic work, only grossing)
Albany Medical College - Albany NY (Insufficient PA staff, so residents do most of the grossing)
Stony Brook - LI (too much grossing and no preview time, though some people deny this)
Roosevelt-St. Luke - NY (on probation)
Mount Sinai - NYC (malignant)
Listed as with reservations (the jury is still out on these ones, but beware):
Virginia Commonwealth (conflicting reports about grossing burden, ?resident sign-out responsibilities)
Howard (low case volume)
Henry Ford - Detroit Michigan
George Washington University - Washington D.C.
Baystate Medical Center - Springfield MA
Case Western Reserve University - Cleveland Ohio
Brown University - Providence RI
DMC - Wayne State - Detroit, Michigan
