Very organized, 5-6 one-on-one interviews
Program Advantages
strong surg #'s
Great surgical numbers
strong reputation in the northeast and new york area; great clinical training without fellows; the PD Langer won the teaching award several years back; may be the second best program in NYC area; nice in house call with post-call days off
Very good exposure, decent research, good reputation
Program Disadvantages
Worked to death
Residents worked to the bone and seem miserable, one even dropped out. In house call. Newark is not safe city.
newark, hospital not too impressive; in house calls
In house call all 3 years, very crappy area, have to commute, cost of living not low
