However, most combined em/im residents are happy to teach procedures, but it is the rare IM resident that takes them up on it.
False. False false false false x 100. I am a senior going into a procedural specialty and I literally BEGGED one of the more notorious EM/IM residents to please let me help on procedure team, teach me midlines, LPs, anything. His reply? A breezy, “Sorry, I gotta get my intern certified first.” As if that ED intern wouldn’t have a million and one opportunities to do LPs in the ED. Or other ICU rotations.
But at least he had the decency to reply. Some of the other EMs or EM/IM residents don’t even give you the courtesy of that. You walk into the room of a new ICU admit who arrived 30s ago and boom - they’re already gowned up and placing the central line. Even though it’s not their patient. Even though none of the orders or notes are done yet. Of course... they leave the other interns to those silly nuisances.
Now I am a senior and fairly aggressive about allowing my interns to do whatever procedure they like (as long as it’s appropriate and they can be supervised). It’s true, some are not interested, usually the prelims. But the last time I asked a few of my categorical interns, I got the mournful reply: “I’d love to, but they always get taken by the EM residents or NPs...”
If the residents don’t get enough procedural training, it is certainly not from lack of interest. It is from aggressive residents in other departments and lack of administrative support (“Oh it’s just easier if IR comes to do it...”)
Bump? Can any current residents comment on the strengths/weaknesses of the program?
Unlikely to match. You can check the past few years roster, almost all of them are from local NY schools and zero IMGs. You will have greater success hearing back from the other LIJ owned hospitals such as Staten Island or Forest Hills.Hello,
I know this thread is pretty old, but can anyone let me know the chances of an US-IMG matching into this program, in the website it indicates IMGs have matched presently, but doesn't indicate the statistics, so not sure of the probability of matching. If there is a chance of IMGs matching, is there an average score for Step 1 & 2 (as this program seems very competitive) , I am planning on apply for the 2022 Match, and this area and hospital is my top priority for personal reasons. I would very much appreciate it if anyone can let me know.
Thank You in advance.
Biased. But still a good program. The quality of training, caliber of resident and (much less importantly) impressiveness of fellowship match lists are generally uncompatable to nyc programs including Monte. It’s still the next best program in the nyc metro and would be preferable over other academic lite programs like stony brook and downstate. On par maybe slightly behind RWJHow does this place compare to the five city programs now? A friend at this program tells me its comparable to monte? Don't know how biased he is.
