Any thoughts out there from folks who have done Sub-Is or interviewed at the following programs: UCSD, UCLA-NPI, UCLA-SFVP, and Cedars-Sinai?

cedars is a great training program i feel. amazing patient diversity. possibly the best i have seen. (u do see both low and high functioning cases, atlest in inpatient and c/l.) i heard ucla-sfv is good too in that the workload is light. heard u spend a lot of time driving and with VA patients. i didnt interview there.

dont know too much about the other 2. heard ucsd is not friendly but i am sure it is great for research. heard ucla-npi is good for research.

Tnanks for the info!

I did an inpatient sub-I at UCLA-NPI and found the cases to be very rich in psychopathology. I also found the social workers to be very strong, supportive, and involved.

One of the concerns that came up was that during the internship year, while on Medicine at CHS (UCLA), you will be seeing a lot of tertiary cases. Some feel this would make for a very interesting rotation and others feel like, in light of going into Psych, bread-and-butter cases in Medicine would be more useful.

It is only one month. You get plenty of bread and butter in your month of outpatient medicine (took Step III right after and was well prepared), one month of VA urgent care, and inpatient VA. Don't knock tertiary care--working with some of those complicated patients actually can have a lot to do with psychiatry, esp. in those with HIV, transplant issues, and the like.
