im intersted in internal medicine , im searching the programs in CA which are more FMG friendly. i heared that CA programs are tough to get into except for family med.
then you might get a more relevant and specific response in the internal medicine thread as every program is different. The EM program there is top notch.
As the previous post stated, everyone calls the hospital by its old name Highland Hospital.
Don't believe all the negative information you hear about Oakland. Oakland has its problems like any other urban area and as a whole Oakland is a great city.
I'm sorry but to the above poster, that is a gross over exaggeration regarding the safety of Oakland as a city.
I think as I said earlier, it depends largely on what your perspective is, ie where you are coming from. If you grew up in rural anytown USA for instance, then maybe Oakland would scare you a bit. However, if you have ventured inside the rest of America and it's major cities, I think you would find Oakland to be quite habitable. And as another poster stated, you don't have to live on the corner of East 14th and high street....Piedmont, Montclair, North Oakland, Berkeley, the Lake, etc are all wonderful neighborhoods.
There is crime in Oakland, yes. But those committing it are largely committing it against those in their own community and against those of their own association.
