I'm also interested in JHU Bayview, so if anyone can shed some light, it would be great...

So I actually rotated at JH Bayview as well for several of my rotations including Medicine. The patient population is quite different from the one at Downtown Hopkins as they are mostly elderly lower/middle class caucasians who live in the Dundalk/Highlandtown area, often veterans or retired steelworkers. There is also a large Hispanic population, so being able to speak medical spanish is a plus.

The hospital runs quite differently from Downtown Hopkins - two interns and one senior resident take call together as a team at Bayview. The hospital itself is also many fewer beds. The Attendings at Bayview are generally good (often trained at Downtown Hopkins), and the teaching is excellent. In my personal opinion I think that the training may not quite be as rigorous as that at Downtown Hopkins. This may be a generalization, but I think that many Hopkins Med students who know the two programs would consider Bayview a great place to do a prelim year, but if they are applying as Categorical applicants, would apply to the downtown program.

Their Geriatric program is fabulous, by the way (probably by virtue of the patient population) so if you are interested in that, this a would be a great program.

As those of you who applied to Bayview know, the medicine residencies at Downtown Hopkins and Bayview are essentially completely separate, with the exception of the Cardiac Care Unit, which is staffed by residents from downtown as well as those out at Bayview. Strangely enough, the rest of the hospital services (OB/GYN, Pathology, Surgery, E Med) are staffed with rotating residents from programs based at Downtown Hopkins.

OK, finally decided on which ones I will make a concerted effort go to:
Boston U
Brown
Dartmouth
Lahey Clinic
UMass
Tufts-NEMC
UVM
NYMC-St. Vincent's
Jefferson (if I can get a good date)
Maryland (same as Jeff)
Baystate (if they invite me)
Maine Medical (if they invite me)
BIDMC ( :love: if I get an interview)

I personally think 12 is a lot, but if I reconsider, might throw in G-town and/or GW since DC is a cool location. Declining Pitt and Rochester b/c my family lives in Boston and there are no reasonably priced non-stop flights going between Boston and either of these cities. Bummer, b/c both are great programs. Good luck, hope to see some of you at interviews as well.
 
You guys are all superstars...getting a ton of interviews..,but how many do you guys actually plan on going to?

Any one going to jacobi on Monday or Mt sinai on wed?
 
hey svetang, I think we're going to need a showdown to determine who'll use that avatar! :D
 
So what's up w/ MGH? I seem to remember somewhere on their web-site that they tell you when you are coming to interview. So it looks like they wait until you have all of your interviews scheduled and then they blow it apart.
 
8/11 of the New England programs for me, Baystate via snail mail today. BIDMC, where are you? :D
 
oh yeah, got jhu-bayview via e-mail as well; forgot to mention that. not sure if I'll be able to go, but what a nice e-mail; very flattering:)

Still waiting on:
BIDMC (please??)
Maine Medical
U Conn (will prob. not go)
Mt. Sinai (not happening, I actually meant to remove it from my list b/c one of my letter writers worked there and hated it)
Yale (PC track)-I think after applying to too many places and getting these interviews I can handle being rejected by them:)

driving up to beautiful Hanover, NH later today; Dartmouth interview on Monday, maybe I'll see some of you there. Good luck!
 
anyone hear from BWH? Don't recall seeing a post from anyone.
 
I've heard from BWH, and I think a few others have as well. Say, does anyone have any input on Stanford and UCSF? I'm debating about whether or not to make the long trip to Cali, and was wondering if it would be worth it?
 
Which one lost accreditation? GW or Georgetown? Does anyone know the status of the programs now?

Peptidoglycan,

Peptidoglycan,
out of curosity, why aren't you going to Utah to interview?

Utah looks like a beautiful place with a very nice program, but I am starting to have to decide which programs to cut. I applied to 19 programs because I'm couples matching, and so far I have 14 interviews, with 4 programs still out. There just isn't the time to go to all of them, and I'm going to see a lot of places as part of a bigger trip that I might not have otherwise gone on. I can't really combine Utah with any other program and I'm not sure the time is available (not to mention the money). It's looking like I might not go to the UCSD interview either, for the same reason.

This whole process kind of sucks and the decisions I'm being forced to make are no fun. At least it's easier than applying to med school!
 
Finally got U of Chicago, but of course they don't have dates available when I'll be there for Rush and NWU. Oh well...

Anyone hear anything from the primary cares at UCSF yet?[/QUOTE]

I did hear from UCSF/SFGH program last week, unfortunately they have relatively few interview dates and I don't think I will able to go.

Others...heard from BID Monday, MGH yesterday, Yale today. It's been a good week!

Interviewed at Michigan this week--VERY impressive, hard to detect any drawbacks whatsoever in their program, EVERYBODY was enthusiastic and intelligent, I'll be ranking them very high. :thumbup:
 
20/25-Maine Medical Center today. I don't think I need to repeat at this point which one I am REALLY waiting for..:D
