    Can anyone offer any insight into IM Primary Care Residency program rankings? An estimate of the top 10 programs would be most helpful!
    More specifically, UCSF vs. BWH vs. MGH? Does JH Bayview make the list?

    Thanks!

        Add BIDMC, I was very impressed by their primary care commitment. You enter in PGY2 but they accept all interested residents.

        Anyone know anything about GW's Primary Care program??

        Def. agree about UNC's inclusion, but I'd argue against BIDMC - while the BI is excellent in many things and there's a strong general internal med faculty, the really top notch PC programs tend to be far more structured than what BI offers.

        Much as medicine programs are weak in the DC area, so too are the primary care programs...GW's program is the best in the city (particularly for its strengths in health policy), but that's not saying a lot. You'd be better served by Bayview, which is only a 30-40 minute drive away. :)

          I'd also note - the South and Midwest seem under-represented here. I'd throw out the following programs as solid for general medicine/primary care, but not at the level of these programs:

          OHSU, UCLA, Harbor-UCLA, UAB, Emory, Michigan, Mayo, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, BU, Brown, Dartmouth

            As things have changed in the last 4-5 years, here's a healthy bump.

            Any current opinions on the PC programs, particularly east coast - NYU, Sinai, Cornell, Monte, BU, Bayview, Brown, Yale, Penn
