  • Yes but need to be approved by university committee

Comment 1:

Pros: Residents at NYUMC rotate through three different hospitals: NYU Langone Medical Center (private), Bellevue Hospital Center (government), and the Manhattan VA. This provides exposure to three different patient demographics and vastly different pathology. These rotations are also structured so that residents have graduated responsibilities as they progress through residency.

NYUMC residents' salaries are the second highest in NY. Residents also recieve a good health insurance and benefits package, including conference travel funds and book funds.

The attendings at NYU are not only excellent pathologists, but great colleagues as well.

Cons: Currently there are no designated residents desk space. However, the department is undergoing renovation and improvements. Residents have only three months of elective time.

Comment 2:

Quoted from Posted by PathMD2010 on 10-19-2010:

(Regarding residency interviews)

"...I interviewed there last year. It actually was a pretty good interview! You do meet with each interviewer individually and without interruptions.
"You meet with EVERYONE in the morning for a breakfast and presentation, then split into two groups: one group does interviews 1 on 1 round robin style; the other group goes for a tour and chills with residents. Then join for lunch together, switch, and then wine and cheese party!
"The pros to it: you get to meet other people on the interview trail, its on a Sat so no interruptions, and they only hold about 4 days of interviews so no interview fatigue from the school's side.
"The cons: they meet 20-25 people in a day so it may be harder to stand out, you don't get to see daily workings by the residents (though last year they did give an open invite to come by and see), and the group with the residents is quite large. Also, hard to reschedule because they hold such few dates.
"I really was impressed by the program overall." [1]
