    Does anybody have an updated information about this program? I heard they had a bad history in 2012 and were put on probation. Any input on residents excessively grossing.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    I accidently interviewed here in 2014.
    https://www.scutwork.com/programs/115/st-lukes-roosevelt-hospital-center-progr-546609/
    I do believe reviews on the scutwork.com in general reflect the current status quo.
    During the grossing day residents can gross up to 200 cases, PA's are obviously trying to avoid this place, so even if you see PA during your interview he/she can disappear before you start actual residency and you will be on your own in the gross room.
    It used to be a prematch program (I bet it is now) and the only reason to end up here if you are: 1) FMG 2) have poor USMLE scores 3) desperately need H1 visa 4) desperately have to stay in NYC.
    They have subsidized housing on Manhattan which is still ridiculously expensive.

    Thank you for your input. I was wondering if they changed since the last reviews in scutwork and probation. They still offer pre-match.
    I am a FMG. but with good scores, 240s. Have had about 10 interviews.

    So don't go there even for the interview, don't waste your time and money.
    People still pass boards and get fellowships but my impression that doing residency in such a places is like swimming in the whirlpool.

    I'm an IMG who was living in Brooklyn at the time and didn't even bother with them despite interviewing at most of the others. I can't speak first hand, but skip.
