I'm hoping someone can add to my limited interview day knowledge of Mount Sinai and the Albert Einstein Montefiore programs. Any experience/insight into these programs would be helpful, but I've also listed specific questions/issues that were not clear on interview day. I'm looking for a program that offers diverse clinical experiences (such as multiple training sites and different ethnic/socioeconomic patient populations) as well as reasonable work hours as I have many interests outside of the hospital. Thank you! 1) Mt Sinai: This program seems "up and coming," and a seems to offer a good work/life balance. However, some of the residents I met were not very friendly or engaged. I also heard that faculty are sometimes distant and don't teach much. Any one had similar or different experiences? 2) Montefiore: I heard great things about resident happiness and satisfaction, however the hospital seemed dreary and I did not meet many people on interview day. I am also worried about limited exposure to diverse patient populations, as residents only treat low income patients in the Monte hospital. Also, the residents I did meet seemed to be here mainly because they had families and wanted an easier program. Any thoughts on quality of the training?
