    I just wanted to know the deal with the Cleveland Clinic Foundation internal medicine residency program. I realize that the hospital itself has a very good reputation (U.S. news ranks it with Hopkins, Mass General, etc.) but I have heard that the medicine residency program doesn't have as good of a reputation. So I was wondering what you guys know about the program, and if what I hear is true or not. Also, how would this program compare to the likes of B.U. or Jefferson? Thanks.

    CCF is a place to go for medicine subspecialty or surgical/surgical subspecialty training. It is a tertiary referral center where general medicine residents truly are lost in the shuffle. Arab sheikhs and VIPs from this country do not go to the CCF for primary care. Having a couple of friends who are in medicine fellowships there, I have it on pretty good authority that it is NOT a place to go for strong IM training.
