It is a three year old experience on these tow programs:
1. St. Barnabas medical center in NJ:
a good community program for CMGs. Not very far from the city. PD is a
Harvard graduate and thinks himself academic and likes CMGs with PhD and
research background. I heard he once gave a prematch to a Chinese girl who
failed CS once and let her pass later. She later, I heard, matched at Dana
Farber at Harvard (not sure). I went there without taking CS and got a
prematch too. He knows China too. Work load is not bad at all with tristate
standards. There is housing across the hospital for residents. CMGs there
traditionally have no problem matching at good fellowships, including at
places like Harvard in Heme/Onc and GI. A lot of CMG colleagues there not
only in medicine but also in surgery too. They offer prematch right after
Cons: Not an exciting place. No fellowship of it own. Usually does not
sponsor H-1 visa (three years ago). But exceptions can be made.
2. Staten island university hospital:
Pros: Closer to the city, though you have to drive to get to it but toll is
expensive. Has its own fellowships in Cardiology and Heme/Onc. If you decide
cardiology is what you want, a better shot here than St Barnabas.
Reputation wise still a community hospital but I think better than St
barnabas. Sponsor H-1 visa.
Cons: Not very CMG friendly and therefore not many CMG colleagues, and
therefore, no big name fellowship placement, hehe. Like really fresh
graduates (3 years). Workload is probably heavier than St barnabas.
Again, this information is three years old. Any CMG in these two programs
might give us a better idea.
Hope this helps. Good luck folks.
