for whatever it's worth..clev clinic in my eyes clearly stands out as the winner. OUTSTANDING faculty there, and great teaching (hell, i'd attend ANY residency that Jenny Hunt teaches at).I am having difficulty ranking the aforementioned programs. Can somebody please provide some insight that may assist me in my decision making. Thank you.
You're not giving us much to work with. What are your career goals and what do you want to get out of a program?I am having a hard time ranking Yale, NYU, and Cornell. Can anybody provide opinions as to which is the stronger and weaker programs of the three? Thank you
I'm afraid you may not get much help here, because they will each have advantages & disadvantages. These are all good programs and you will have adequate training opportunities at any of them. It's a fact of life that no matter where you go, there will be some attendings that really enjoy teaching and others that could care less.I want a program that more teaching focused then service focused but at the same time a program that provide sufficient volume and variety. I don't want to go to a place where residents are simply seen a cheap labor....So obviously I am trying to figure out who are the liars.
The pathology departments have actual work to do; training residents is just a part of the overall mission. The mission is usually service, research and teaching - in order of priority, based on my experience....Attending have to be more then willing to spend time teaching residents and just can't be primarily focused on service turn over. If thats how they feel then they should be at place without a residency program. .
