what are the top 10 programs in this geographic region, in terms of competitiveness for acceptance?
In Northeast, Columbia and MGH-McLean appear to be the two biggest name programs. You then also have Cornell, NYU, Penn, JHU, and maybe Harvard Longwood. In the Southeast, you have Emory, UNC, Duke and Medical University of South Carolina.
I don't really think that ranking or competitiveness matter that much in psychiatry.
According to U.S. News:
thanks for the above replies. specifically, i want to hear opinions regarding what the top 5 programs are in EACH of the following areas:
1. NY/NJ metro area
can anyone reply to the above post?
NY- bellevue(a solid prog)
Philly-UPenn(a little disorganized from resident perspective/strong in research)
Just my opinion, others may disagree...
1. NY/NJ metro area
Sinai School of Medicine
Lots of other smaller programs in NY/NJ area
Don't know much about this area.
Harvard South Shore
Don't know if you are applying soon, but if you haven't already, you may want to search for previous threads on psychiatry programs/interviews (people have commented on specific programs they have visited)...
Also, in case you don't have it, here is a list of the PGY-1 psychiatry programs from the AAMC:
Good luck to you.
How did yale get lumped as "somewhat competitive" when it is ranked above Mt. Sanai & NYU?
No prob. Any specific questions about schools I may have interviewed at, feel free to PM me.
I am definitely not the expert on these programs, so other people may rank differently. The reason I placed programs as I did was due to my general feel from talking to my advisors, interviewing at different programs, and seeing who went to each program in the past from my school, not by US News rankings. It is very hard to get a sense of programs in general, so my "rankings" are quite subjective, and hope you will take them with a grain of salt.
Probably the best people to talk to about the strength of programs are recent grads who went into psychiatry from your school or advisors/attendings at your school, since they are likely to have better perspective than a recent interviewee like myself.
Best of luck - it's difficult to find a program that is a good fit, but there are many excellent ones out there.
