    I need to cancel a few interviews. Any feedback on which of these programs is the worst. And please dont reply "it depends what you are looking for".

    NYMC Our Lady of Mercy
    NYMC
    Buffalo
    Stamford
    Dartmouth
    Stonybrook
    Maine Medical Center

    Most of these are conflicting.
    Thanks :)

    Why don't you order them according to where you'd most like to live, and then take the top ones?

    QUality-wise they all seem pretty equivalent. Maybe Dartmouth and MMC are the "better" ones, and the rest are pretty run-o-the-mill....

    Good luck!

    I'm not sure about MMC. I had a friend who matched there a few years ago and he said that every surgeon he worked with there was divorced. He did not like the atmosphere at all. Ended up switching to gas.

    Second hand, at best, tho. Maybe they've made some changes in the past 3 or 4 years.

    Funny, on the MMC gen surgery website it seems as if every resident writes about how positive and family-friendly the program is.

    Hmmm...does anybody with experience know if this program is as "laid-back" (compared to other G.S. programs) as the residents are making it out to be or is it just a selling point to attract more applicants?

    Also, what's the low-down with Stamford if anybody knows?
