Hello, everyone: I have a question of great concern to me regarding the NYCOM Fellowships available to 3rd/4th/and extended 5th year students at the school. The questions below are primarily for current NYCOM students (preferably 2nd year and above). How competitive is it to be accepted into one of the three Fellowships? (The three: Neuroscience/Histology, Anatomy, or OMM). How helpful would it be to complete one of the Fellowships due to the additional Fellowship Certificate added to the Fellow's file when applying to Residencies and Internships? Is the added Research offered during the Fellowship helpful when applying for competitive specialty Residencies, i.e., Surgery, Radiology, etc.? Is the "pardoned" 2nd and 3rd year tuition (amounting to approx $51,000 total) a considerable enough reason to pursue one of the fellowships? Do you have any idea of how many 2nd year students apply for any particular Fellowship per year? How demanding are these Fellowships--work hours? work load? required to give presentations? I'd appreciate any information you can give me regarding this matter. I'm really searching for ANONYMOUS, HONEST information about the Fellowship programs. Thank you.
