Hospital is university affiliated community hospital, patient population is
80% uninsured and 20% medicare/medcaid, lots of Hispanic population as well.
Serving as the only public hospital in Illinois, it has roughly 300 beds.

Medicine department is comprised all subspecialties, but there is no specific
ward for GI, neurology, etc, so you see all kinds of patient. Residents come
from all over the world, mostly India, South America. I am the only Chinese resident out of 140+ medicine residents. There was another Chinese resident
who left last year for a top-notch fellowship. Fellowship opportunity is
moderate, majority of residents go for hospitalist as their visa status.

For interview, it is definite a relax process. Attending here usually are
very down-to-earth, but be prepared to present an interesting case in case
they asking. 80% of positions are given by prematch and usually filled by
early January, so schedule your interview early, they usually give out
prematch offer in 1-2 weeks time after IV if they like you.

Interns here don’t do overnight call. Call is Q4 days on floor, cap is 5
patients per intern from 7AM-6PM, senior resident admit overnight patient
and assign 2 to each intern on post-call day, so 24 hrs cap for intern is 7
patients and you don’t stay overnight. Of course, 1st and 2nd floor month
on call can be tough, I once left 11PM. After 2-3 rotations, intern should
be able to leave hospital by 7:30PM on call day, generally speaking.

On non-call day, you leave 5:30PM. The rest of info should be the same
comparing with other hospitals. Book allowance is 950 $ a year. Vacation is
4 weeks but you have to take as a whole, which kind of sucks. There is
budget issue relating to cook county of Chicago, leading to closure of some satellite clinics and firing, but residency program is not affected.

Hope this helps.
