SF vs. New Haven
Moffit, SFVA, SFGH, CPMC, Mount Zion vs. Yale-New Haven Hospital
Those are two things I would think about a lot. Preclinical stuff really isn't all that important when comparing the two of these schools. I rarely hear about Yale's clinical years. I do know that they pride themselves on their independent style learning in the first two years. Sounds pretty cool, but a little too unstructured for me. I think Yale and UCSF except a lot of the same students b/c I know a bunch of people who were deciding between UCSF and Yale in my class. They are still very happy to be here.
Bottom line: both places are great, i'm sure.
Ask third/fourth years at Yale about their rotations, how many procedures they have been able to do, board scores, fourth year opportunities, faculty support during 3rd/4th year, etc. Try to find people at Yale who were also choosing between UCSF and Yale.
Seems most schools like to market the 1st two years of the medical school, but I think the 3rd/4th are more important.
