* Jacobi vs Einstein Philly vs Cook County

  How should I rank considering reputation, cards fellowship, and quality of life?

I've never had a chance to personally visit these hospitals, so I really could use some help.

Thanks in advance.

  Anybody? Please help..


These are the info that I have researched so far:

Jacobi pros: university hospital, fellowship positions in Montefiore, NY life
Jacobi cons: busy NY workload, poorer QoL, possible scutwork(?), costs of living

CC pros: good fellowship matches, Chicago life
CC cons: community hospital, busy, possible scutwork(?), poorer QoL

Einstein Philly pros: better QoL, in-house fellowships
Einstein Philly cons: community hospital, hospital in dangerous area

Any additional info? Opinion? Anything will help.

  Where ever you match is a bless and will help you to progress forward.

I am not familiar with the IM programs much, however I heard that CC is not that good based on inputs from my co-residents. I lived in Chicago for a year before I match somewhere else.
It is busy hospital located in the medical district in Chicago "which has Rush/UIC/VA and Cook county". It is community hospital, has one of the largest number of residents position given that it is a busy one, and as you said I heard about the scutworks. Also, cost of living in Chicago is not the best. In medical district, the apartment rent is between 1300-1800 dollars. In the loop 1600-2500 dollars for one bedroom.

Thanks for the input.

After hearing from you, maybe I should rank Einstein Philly above CC.
