I think Jacobi prefers people from albt einstein for hem/onc fellow so if you dont belong to albt i dont think you going for hem onc.Happy Holiday Season! Long time lurker as well here. I am a Non-US Need Visa IMG interested in Hem-Onc fellowship. I hope to do some research as an oncologist in the future.
Goal: Hem-Onc fellowship and opportunity for research
1. Cook County: Inhouse Hem-Onc fellowship, decent alumni placement for a community hospital, got rid of much scut work these years. Not easy to get away rotation.
2. Houston Methodist: Inhouse Hem-Onc fellowship, strong faculty members, alumni mostly matched in Texas. No away rotation.
3. Albert Einstein Philly: Inhouse Hem-Onc fellowship. Great alumni placement. Merging with Thomas Jefferson Univ (not sure good or bad)
4. St. Luke's–Roosevelt: Great alumni placement, opportunity to rotate at MSKCC.
5. Jacobi: They want to start their own inhouse Hem-Onc fellowship. Matched 1~2 residents to Monte Hem-Onc. Flexible research elective time. Electives can only be done at Monte.
6. Staten Island Univ Hospital/Northwell Health: Inhouse Hem-Onc fellowship. Not a lot of people doing away electives.
7. Univ of Hawaii: Supportive to take away electives or attend conference in mainland US.
8. Midtown campus/University of Maryland: Many rotations done at Main Campus. Very easy to get away electives at prestigious institutes.
9. Mount Sinai Queens: Good fellowship placement (1~2 go to SUNY Downstate Hem-Onc). Seems supportive to do research so long as you are proactive.
10. Danbury: Hiring full-time scholars to help the residents for their research. Electives at their affiliated hospitals. Not many people matched to Hem-Onc.
11. Saint Peter's/Rutgers RWJ: Not many people matched to Hem-Onc.
I have glanced through several old threads regarding some programs that invited me. In terms of overall strength, probably all program are similar on this list. I may move Jacobi up to the top since a few successful alumni are from my home country. I appreciate your input and expertise!
