GI is so competitive I would make the second trip and try for both. If you absolutely had to choose, UF is clearly the better choice.
Unless you want the Mayo tag that might help in academics later one. Remember many Mayo fellows don’t get much scope experience, compared to other programs.

Debating between choosing an IV for UF Gainesville vs Mayo-Fl
Got two interviews both far apart and no chance of swapping. Any advice? Also first IV tmw and wondering if anyone had advice

Right. It's unavoidable. I'm flying to San Diego, Florida, and LA in a 3 day span.

How many IVs do you have? Because unless you have a dozen or so, the question should be would you rather not do GI at all or go to either one of those places.

UF is better but explain to Mayo Florida the situation and go to that one also if you can.
If not politely decline the offer now so the next person in line gets one.

Mayo is a great place to work so do not burn bridges.

Advice for tomorrow: Be your self, know the program , know why you want the position and make sure you have a smile and show appreciation for the field, ask questions regarding rotations and clinics. ask regarding procedure numbers if you want (but don’t ).

Be your self. Be amiable and tell them you are a team player.

Like this week or next week KUMC will most likely send invites or send again for interview dates on even Saturdays. If they haven’t already. Maybe my timetable is wrong, but I wholeheartedly believe more interviews will come.

The issue though is will come for people with 5 IVs or the ones with 13+

Ok Howard is a safety net hospital.
You rotate at a an affiliated site for liver and advance procedure.
They are research heavy on microbiome and genetics of African American mutations causing colorectal cancer.
Not many IBD cases.
Recent fellows landed advance in UCLA and transplant in Hopkins.
But majority go into private outpatient.

Great team and set up for the GI program but they rank internal applicants first.

Can you predict the date of NJMS interviews, Oracle ShiShi
Not to the exact date but the email will come Next week. I think they Will invite 60 people. Then some will decline since it will overlap with other interviews and they do not do this swap thing. Than they invite another set or tell people who get in touch with them come.

Out of 3 position 1 goes to internal for sure.

Avoid Vegas. They had their program go on probation two years ago coz all their faculty left to start their own private practice. Then they somehow hired few ppl and running a program that is not impressive in any count
