I am. If I do private practice I'll do heme, but if i do academics I'll do renal. Or at least that's what i think as an MS4.

I have a friend at MD Anderson who completed the hemepath fellowship there. She was worked really hard, published a lot, and became a real expert in her field. She will have a great career in academics.

She did mention that they are pretty hard core. The unwritten policy on sick leave is: "If you are calling in sick, you better be calling in dead!" So even though everyone gets the virus, no one misses work, so no problem, right?

If you have the right personality, I'm sure it would be an excellent experience. Personally, I prefer things to have a little slower pace, but I'm glad that the hard-core programs are a good fit for others.

I just came back from an interview in hopkins.It didn't sound so "hard core " as you put it.In fact I felt it was a friendly atmosphere.

I think it's true that MD Anderson is hard-core, but they also train really fine specialists, and would be an excellent choice - perhaps the best - for anyone who doesn't mind living in Houston :smuggrin:

NIH would probably be the most research-oriented. Not really qualified to judge between UPenn and JHU.
