Really a program on the rise but I think that fact is clearly out of the box. They have amazing facilities and the town of Ann Arbor is really great. The chair Dr. Bloom is one of the nicest people (even outside of mediince) that I have ever met. They have really happy residents and they publish alot from their faculty, including alot of basic science. They are a large referal center so I am sure their volume is way more than adaquate. I also was really in to their new way of putting your year of research at the end of your residency if you are going on to a fellowship, that way the year can count towards your fellowsip research (Hopkins has a similar thing). I think the concept of merging fellowships with residency is a great way to get more people to do it especially if they are bummed about the two to three extra years after residency. It imagine more places with try to do something like this in the future. Also a nice perk is the residenst get something like a 7% bonus every year in the November paychecks! Besides those who hate the cold/snow the city seems to have all you could want given the fact you are going to be in residency. The residents really like it there and everyone including the faculty seem really happy. All around a great program.
