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.
