Rochester- Good/great larger program. Very strong residents and great hospitals.

Albany - Pretty good, small program. Good number of FMG's. Nice overall hospital system.

Syracuse - Very small university hospital, no OB or peds. Peds is coming (2007?). Currently get shipped to Cinci and the Brigham for these rotations. Large number of FMG's. Good college sports.

I would search through recent posts about these, I'm pretty sure I wrote some more on each of these but this is the general order of them, Rochester is by far and away a standout in upstate NY. The rest get lumped together basically.
