I did my EM residency at USF, and did quite a few rotations with the medicine residents (as well as becoming friends with many of them). Yes, all interns at USF get only two weeks off the first year. Generally, its not that bad... especially for the medicine interns, because you get some easy peasy elective rotations, and your ER month as an intern isn't bad either (shift work). You do have a few call months but in general they're not bad.

Most of hte meidicne residents got into the fellowships, atleast the ones in teh class that graduated with me. I think the training is definitely solid. Give it a good interview, and try talking to other USF residents/students.
