Programs in this cycle
(05-23-2020, 01:17 PM)amygdala_830 Wrote: Can anyone speak to the north east programs that aren't the "big name" places typically talked about here? Dartmouth, Tufts, BID, Yale, Sinai, Einstein, etc? Do these suffer from being in a compact area or near the NYC/BWH/MGH programs? Which have better research, autonomy, operative experiences, etc?

Really appreciate the continuing input from all of the residents. Would anyone be able to talk about Emory or Vanderbilt?

Brown -- is becoming/has become the true New England spine powerhouse under Gokaslan. Very few complex cranial cases, those cases go to Boston. Do not expect to become a skull base expert. Neuro IR is very strong, they run endovascular. Good PA/NP support. However, Rhode Island Hospital is the biggest single trauma center in New England, and can get quite busy. Residents are an eclectic group, seemed capable of working fairly autonomously, and seemed to get along fairly well with each other. Brown has very strong basic neuroscience research, but neurosurgical research leaves something to be desired.

Overall, traditionally weak program that has improved greatly in the past few years, especially in spine.
