Dr. Ferguson is PD. We talked about his former residents. He gave me
several former residents\' contact information. He asked me why I want to go

can tell he is very fair and honest.
The attending, MANSUR SHOMALI, M.D. is very nice, too. He asked me to first
tell him about myself. He asked me what other hospitals I interviewed at. He
said that Union has more specialties than Good Samaritan. I am not sure
what he was trying to say.

Good review about this program! A few things I'd like to add:
They are located between a wealthy neighborhood and a poor neighborhood,so
their patients are quite diverse too, which is good;
They have service attending rounds every morning (Mon through Sat probably),
which usually offers better teaching compared to rounds with senior
residents. Some hospitals do not have attending rounds everyday.
The aspect I don't like personally is that they don't have all the
specialties in the hospital. I personally prefer bigger hospitals with all
the specialties. Another bad point is that they have quite a number of HIV(+
) patients and drug addicts, which is probably universal in all the hospital
in Baltimore including JHU.
