Thanks, I should have prefaced that I have family in Michigan and Chicago and would love to stay in those areas respectively. Thoughts on Beaumont compared to UPMC?

Is it normal to hear from programs who are ranking you high towards the end? I haven’t heard anything, barely any responses to even my thank you emails.

Just like you have them. Top 2 interchangeable, marshall clear 3rd
would you consider putting advocate lutheran general in Chicago above Marshall considering chicago vs huntington or the difference in training is significant enough to make Marshall worth it?

Greetings everyone,

I'm trying to figure my rank list out, but I forgot to write down the call system for Tulane University program at NOLA when I interviewed there, does anyone remember how their call system is ? (In terms of how many weekend calls and weekday calls and is it frontloaded or not)

Appreciate any help !

In tiers
1) UK / VCU
2) MCG, mayo florida, UT knox, SLU, U kansas

I don't know much about wake / st lukes. Solid mid tier programs there I think differentiating would come down to your personal likes / dislikes.

Any thoughts about University of Colorado's program? Seemed very well rounded at interview day but not mentioned much in these forums, so curious for others' input, thank you.

Great location obviously but I had heard from past interview years it was a malignant program and I think that might still be true. Fellows seemed like they were worked very hard. Also heard rumors about the fellows having troubles getting numbers.

I’ve heard of people getting ranked to match emails already.
Wow really? I was under the impression that PDs can’t say rank to match, technically. What are your thoughts if they say strong candidate for our program?? Is that different than clearly saying rank to match?

Thank you! I received three responses saying I would be a great fit for their program but none said "rank to match". Do they only say rank to match if they are definitely taking me? As someone mentioned above, people have been getting rank to match emails. I would love your thoughts on this.

My question remains which programs are we talking about. I got responses from middle tier university or community programs. And yeah generic wording like ‘great fit’, we love to have you here etc but nothing like rank to match. Didnt hear from my best programs though. Hows it for you guys?

What are people’s thoughts on Yale’s program? Obviously they have the name but are they considered to be in the same league as the top academic powerhouses (i.e. Duke, Hopkins, MGH, UCSF, etc)?

They can say whatever they want and it could mean something or nothing. Ignore it all.

Don't confuse undergrad prestige, IM prestige and cardiology prestige.

Geisinger is a great program, supportive PD and very good scedule. The only thing taking away from it is the location and the fact that they don't do LVADs and transplants. Overall very strong clinical training. Send you to UPenn for HF elective for 4 wks though.
I'm at Geisinger and we are implanting LVADs. Put in 2 this month. True we don't have transplant

Is it just me?! I feel this forum ONLY answers when someone asks about some ivy league programs whereas nobody cares about mid-tear programs! I‘ve seen many people asking about mid-tear programs and nobody responded!

I would say it is because everyone has an opinion on the big name places ... coupled with the peculiar demographic that already is SDN...

Ranking is tough because even if you ask fellows ... they only know their home program. Makes comparing mid tier / low tier (where the vast majority of us will end up) very difficult.

What do you guys think about Cleveland Florida and Mount Sinai Florida?
Very different. I think weston, fl would be much more cush (more hand holding / better hours) with better structured didactics / education however you would likely lack a lot of the diversity of pathology seen in miami.

Ill try one more time...

Hi everyone seeing what you all think about my rank order. These are by no means upper tier or even mid tier places so I don't expect a lot of the stellar applicants on here to have any clue about them but any help is appreciated.

Westchester Medical Center
Mount Sinai West-St. Lukes Roosevelt
Cooper
University of Arizona Phoenix
Rutgers NJMS
Virginia Tech(location not ideal)
Newark Beth Israel
Mount Sinai Brooklyn Hospital Program
SUNY Downstate
University of Miami JFK Medical Center
Out of these I only know about following places:
1. Westchester Medical center - PD and chief very supportive. Overall I felt good clinical training with a supportive program. Also close to New York.
2. SLR - again a strong clinical program, seems to be growing - Dr Narula is definitely one of the strengths and I heard about Gregg Stone joining which would be massive name.
3. I did not like Newark Beth Israel - few fellows and a very busy program - If it was me I would move it lower.
4. Uni Miami JFK - huge hospital with lots of volumes. Its a busy program but good for location and training.

I don't know about the rest of the programs.

I sent an email to my number one letting them know (no response), but after this I got a couple very late surprise interview invites and one of these is now my number one. I want to let the new program know and send a number 1 email (and rank them number 1) but feel terrible now about the email to the first program (in my defense I wasn't expecting any more invites). Advice?

I think you should not feel terrible at all. Life happens and things change. After all you should do what is best for you!
