    I recently got an offer for acceptance for Emory's surg path fellowship. I haven't accepted yet, but I'm pretty happy about Emory because you function basically like a junior attending. Beth Israel has offered me an interview, but if I interview, I may lose my position from Emory provided I want to take theirs. Can anyone who is familiar compare and contrast the two programs? Thanks.

    THE biggest factor is where do you want to practice NE or the South??

    If you want to work in Boston afterward, then the choice is easy. If you want to work in Georgia or Florida, likewise easy.

    If you want to work in Cali, I would say neither.

    Hey LADoc, I know you always reccommend doing residency/fellowship in the region you want to practice. That's only for private, right? Or is regionalism important in academics too?

    Not as much. I think in academics the strength / program recognition counts for more in academics, but regionalism works by being known and have the people who hire you know the people from your program...

    So if they know your program because of reputation or because of geography it helps you...

    Honestly, academics is not something you need to strive hard to bust into. Many academic path programs have TONS of openings. At top places your pedigree matters alot (HMS/Stanford/Yale/JHU/WashUetc.) but probably equally important is your publication record.

    "Academics" is also a very vague term, you have academic pure clinical types and academic basic science types. 2 totally different beasts really with different needs/requirements.

    That's a good point about private practice options living in the area where you do fellowship. I was interested in academics though, clinical type. I'll already have a GU fellowship and informatics fellowship under my belt, so I was just using this surg path fellowship for getting good at being at general things, and getting ready for the AP portion of the boards. I didn't want to work at a lab for urologists, even though I'm sure there is money to be made. I think Beth Israel and Emory are similar in strength of caliber for surgical pathology programs. Wouldn't most people agree?
