    Any thoughts on the pros and cons of the various NYC Internal Medicine residency programs? I am specifically looking at Cornell, Columbia, Mt Sinai, and NYU. My take so far:

    Cornell:
    cons= very private, subspecialty oriented.
    pros= beautiful new hospital. nice housing, of course. i like the idea of specialty wards.

    Columbia:
    cons= i don't speak spanish. relatively poor ancillary services.
    pros= two attending system, diverse clinical experience, social mission

    Mt Sinai:
    cons= ????
    pros= warm atmosphere, benign internship experience. diversity of elmhurst experience. everyone seems very happy.

    NYU:
    cons= poor ancillary services, residents hate all-private months at tisch. considered to be academically weaker than other NYC programs (for whatever that's worth).
    pros= train at bellevue! diversity of experiences.

    My gut feeling is with Sinai, but I don't know if that's based on unreliable factors. I'm very tempted by the perks of Cornell. But I'd appreciate any other views on these or other NYC programs.
