    Hey,

    I was wondering if students, residents, and/or attendings could please provide pro/cons about the following programs ,why you might have chose one program over the other, basically any insight to these programs would be greatly appreciated. Oh and also I have very limited amounts of time to do "audition" rotations, do you think a two week rotation is sufficient, and would doing a SICU rotation provide ample exposure to residents and attendings so as to make a positive impression. Thanks.

    Loyola
    Masonic
    Rush
    UIC
    County (Stroger)

    Somehow I am very familiar with all of them :)....Depends of what you want. they are very different regarding the clinical exposure - my favorite is Stroger - the best trauma hospital. Pain - Rush. Combined stuff - Loyola. Masonic - the best teacher - Dr. Khorasani. Good exposure to pain - Candido. glty

    The Private Hospitals
    Rush and Masonic

    Rush--> Very good in Pain. Department of Anesthesia is well respected. They run a lot of ORs. Attendings give lectures.

    Masonic-->In great neighborhood. Trauma center, but lots of good exposure to elective cases as well. One of the biggest names in Pain right now is at Masonic, Dr. Candido. Department is huge in regional and pain. Prepares you well for private practice.


    The County Hospital
    Stroger--> Trauma center. Very FMG friendly. Computerized charts.


    Academic Places
    NWU and U of C --> Both are academic places. NWU is in a great area in Downtown Chicago. Very modern hospital. U of C 's neighborhood is more rough. IF you want to do academics, check these places out. Obviously, you will see the big names and faces in many of the specialties.
    UIC--> From what I hear primarily only takes UIC med students. Also, from what I hear residents are treated well and it is rather 'cush'.
    Loyola--> Great for CV anesthesia. Tons of cases, also a trauma center.
