9. Westchester medical center
This is a university hospital affiliated to NY medical college. Locates in
westchester county, north to Bronx. It's a tertiary hospital. The number of
positions of each year is different. But the total number of 3 year is
always 8. For 2011, there are 4 positions. One position is kept for internal
candidate from Richmond Staten island hospital. There are three positions
left, but most likely one is kept for internal candidate from metropolitan
hospital, two may be kept for internal candidates from westchester medical
center. So the program usually only interview a dozen of candidates from
outside. The program is totally clinical oriented, fit for whoever wants to
do private practice. Very solid clinical training. Each year fellows rotate
in three hospitals: Westchester medical center, outlook hospital in New
Jersy, metropolitan hospital. One month of vacation, one month of elective,
one month of research(chart review kind of things, and residents will help
with the research). In westchester medical center, the rotation is all in
inpatient floor, fellows will round with attendings, write notes and order
chemo, all handwritten. In the other two hospitals, fellows have outpatient
exposure. On call one whole week every 8 weeks. Residents do all the
admissions, fellows only deal with acute leukemia or TTP kind of things.
Work load is high, but fellows usually work from 8am to 5 pm when not on
call.
Interview was very casual. Program directors were very nice and honest.
Asked me about my research,asked me to present some interesting onc or hem
cases, told me it's not a good place for bench workers but very good for
clinicians.Talked a little bit about some hospitals in NY which will close
down, and what would happen to their residents and fellows, talked about
some health reform, talked about some news, etc. Then the program directors
wrote their comment on me right after the interview.
As many of other programs in NYC, it's very hard to get into the program
because they usually take only internal candidates.
Westchester county is a good place, but very expensive. The salary from this
programis very high for each fellow,$ 64000 for first year fellow.
