Program Summaries

New York - Bronx
Jacobi Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine Program
Setting: New York City ranked #10 in Niche 2019 Best Cities for Young Professionals.

New Chair (Dr. Ortiz) in 2018. Since then, many upgrades, improvements and changes. Residents and attendings love the Chair, he's super approachable and has an impressive resume of running Radiology departments and getting things done for programs.// He was actually the previous chair at NYU winthrop for almost 20 years and helped them rise in prominence (check out doximity ranking).

All the residents seemed happy. They are transparent in what they are and are not. Sounded like a more "Chill" residency program. Most of the residents go on to match into Fellowships with Montefiore and other NY programs.

At the moment, old infrastructure of the hospital and reading rooms.

They are "rebuilding" their program since the new Chair came in. However, it looks like a bright future ahead.
