I'm interested in Hem/Onc. How would you rank these programs based on academic reputation/educational quality?

UCLA-Olive View vs. UT Houston vs. Rush

UTH > Rush > Olive View

And I like Rush over Olive view because I like improved chances in the "Chicago Market" for fellowship as some big name places (UofChicago, and NWern), as well as the fact that Rush has many in-house fellowships as well.

1. It's OHSU

2. Just to prove how subjective these lists are, here's my version:
Penn=WashU>UTSW=Cornell=UofC>OHSU=Yale>Brown>BU>>Tufts

If you move IU to the top of that list, you have a pretty decent rank list. The two LA programs could trade spots depending on whether it's Tuesday or Thursday but otherwise that's about how I'd put them.

None of those places are onc powerhouses but Davis and UAMS are the best on that list for hem/onc.

Ok cool. Thank you!

Without the H/O aspect, how would you rank them just based on IM training in your opinion!

Nice list. None of them are bad programs by any stretch. Some are certainly stronger than others but they'll all largely do the job to get you a fellowship position somewhere.

I won't rank per se, but put them roughly in quartiles. You can do what you wish with that information.

And remember that no program, no matter how "good" it is will be good for you if you want to kill yourself every day you go to work there. Choose a place you will be happy, then choose based on "strength." I mention that simply because I would not have ranked any of the 3 programs in the "top quartile" below simply because I would not have personally fit well there and as such would not have thrived. I was in a program in one of the groups

I am potentially interested in a cardiology fellowship and want to ascertain the reputation of the following IM programs with respect to one another...

Christiana
University of Maryland
Temple
UPMC
UMDNJ-NJMS
UMDNJ-RWJMS
Jefferson
Drexel
GW
Rush

From what I have gathered:
UPMC>UMD>Jefferson=Temple and obviously Christiana and Drexel fall towards to the bottom but I welcome any corrections to this and opinions. Thanks!

You've got a pretty good handle on them. I like my new quartile (or tertile or quintile, depending on the list length) system so here we go...you get tertiles by the way:

UPMC
UMD
RWJMS
--------
Jeff
Temple
NJMS
--------
Drexel
GW
Rush
Christiana
