tool said:I haven't completed my interviews yet but am curious how others would rate these Texas programs: Scott & White, UT-Houston, UT-San Antonio, UTMB (Galveston), Texas Tech - Lubbock
Would most people just rank based on location?
DoctorSax said:I interviewed at UTMB last week and found it to be a very positive experience--residents are happy, they are competent, fellowship placement is good, and comraderie is fantastic. I would rank it first out of that list. After that...I hear that UT-Houston is pretty good, but they were on probation just a few years ago. UTSA gives pretty solid clinical training and they have the RAHC in Harlingen. There are a couple of reviews about Scott & White on Scutwork with conflicting advice--might want to check them out for perspectives. And as for Tech, while it is in Lubbock, I hear that it's not bad (from med school friends I have that went there).
I wouldn't rank just based on location--as you visit definitely talk to the residents and get an idea of how they like the program. All I can talk about at this point is UTMB and I thought that it was stellar.
Any other thoughts on the question?
I think the peds program at Baylor through Texas Children Hospital is considered to be in the top 10 programs in the nation. When I interviewed at Baylor, on the drive into the medical center the Children's Hospital had quite a presence in the medical center. For IM, I felt UTSW was a better fit for me because I liked Parkland a little more than Ben Taub. I think fellowship placement was roughly equivalent between the two programs and the cost of living in Houston and Dallas were also similar.yobabydoc said:Any thoughts on med-peds at Baylor? or IM?
