In terms of prestige alone, and getting a GI fellowship, can someone help me rank these? I know that location and personal factors matter, but in terms of fellowship placement, what do you guys think?

Thanks in advance.

basd on where I've went, it goes:
Mt Sinai-PD is GI, makes calls for you, very personable, laid back program gives you time for research
UNC, also laid back, great area of nation, full laid back residents, big IBD names
emory: solid program, well respected among GI people
UTSW, excellent for GI, work very hard here, but worth it
Casewestern
Baylor
UPitt=Boston U
NYU=Mayo
Northwestern=Brown
Thats my 2 cents

as always, just my opinion. And, all of these are excellent programs.

1) UTSW (but as we all know, quite malignant and did not fill last year)
2) Case
3) Northwestern
4) Mayo (I really struggle with where to rank Mayo, obviously great name recognition, but it is not that well known for great IM training. Mayo is where you want to do your fellowship, not your residency)
5) Baylor (should be higher but it is still suffering from divorcing the Methodist)
6) Mt. Sinai
7) Pitt
8) BU
9) Emory
10) UNC
11) Brown
12) NYU

I did not interview at many of these schools but want to say that I struggled with Mayo ranking also. The program director is very kind, will go to bat for you, and the residents seem to love the program. The name is tempting, but I have talked to multiple people that have attended Mayo and they say the same thing, better to do a fellowship there than your residency. However, that said, I still believe that if you were to attend Mayo your training would be supurb...if you can survive the city.

The thing about Mayo is that they take most of their fellows (esp. in cards, heme/onc, etc...GI at least 2 per year (but less so than other specialties))from their IM programs...so if you want a "Mayo" fellowship, then your best chances are if you attend the IM program. Most people come to Mayo to position themselves for fellowship, not necessarily for learning something that most graduates (who go on to do very subspecialized fields) will never touch again i.e. general medicine. Second point, most of the "great doctors" at Mayo trained at Mayo for IM and subspecialty...so if you want to see the product of a residency program look at their faculty, if the training was so bad then how could it produce such stellar clinicians? Also, the whole "philosophy" of Mayo is geared towards the specialist, in that they want you to be the best at what you do even if it is one miniscule part of medicine i.e. if you are interested in mastocytosis --> they want you to be the most well known allergist in that field. In fact, alot of the general medicine peops as far as I have heard from friends who went to Mayo is that they have fellowships in general medicine so they are even "specialized" in that. What the fellowship entails I have no clue...

I'd rank Mayo with Ham and Cheese as my top choice.

:p
