What do people think about 2 resident programs like Brown? Are they undesirable because of tougher call (I think Brown was q4), decreased comraderie, what else?

2 residents a year certainly means more call but it also means more surgical volume. Other things to consider is the size of faculty supporting the residents. If a program has a large faculty base supporting the residents it can be considered a positive thing. Camaraderie depends a lot on the culture of the program. 2 people a year means you are not competing for surgery as much.
