I applied to and interviewed with the prelim medicine program at ACMC (=Highland Hospital), which is the county hospital in Oakland, CA. Huge variety of cases, lots of tropical medicine, lots of languages spoken. The housestaff seem pretty happy, have a union to negotiate benefits for them. Faculty seems really supportive. I didn't talk to too many categorical folks, so I'm not sure how PGY-2's and 3's are doing.

Hey why is there lots of tropical medicine? That sounds pretty cool - didn't know you could get much exposure to that during residency...

There is a lot of tropical medicine because there are many people in Oakland from other nations who come to live with family, to find jobs, and sometimes, to find treatment for their conditions. Since ACMC is the county hospital, they don't turn anyone down.
