Definitely agree with above for Maimo, St Luke's, NJMS and LIJ.

NS-LIJ probably is the best reputation-wise in this cohort.

Not much was posted here about SUNY Brooklyn, but I rotated there as well as one of the other programs listed above. Downstate is a resident-focused program with no fellows around and lots of autonomy, which is unfortunately located in probably the worst part of Brooklyn. It's a pain to get to and its not the safest neighborhood. Good for trauma though, and that's their strong point.

There have been recent changes in terms of staff - the program was recently on probation for not having enough attendings and I think their board pass rate was low as well. But they've addressed these concerns since. The main hospital is Kings County as the services at Downstate are all pretty small and the facilities are remarkably old and dingy even by New York standards, but they rotate through a bunch of other hospitals throughout Brooklyn and even in Staten Island which are a good deal nicer. Many residents live in Manhattan or the more gentrified areas of Brooklyn like Park Slope.

The residents get along well for the most part. There's a hint of what used to be a malignant atmosphere here, but it is really nothing like the NJMS description. There's still a pretty standard hierarchical structure though. Chiefs work the juniors hard but seems like its with the intent to make them better. Overall they seem happy.

They match pretty well for fellowships despite whatever recent challenges. Overall its a pretty solid program with some limitations in the areas of research/academics, facilities and driving/parking/convenience.
