Here is the $1,000,000 question: Israeli Medical School (i.e. Technion American Studies program http://teams.technion.ac.il/) or Top Caribbean Schools (i.e. Ross, Saba, SGU)?

Sackler has good matches and also prized researchers (Larrone syndrome was discovered there)

let me qualify first by saying that i know next to nothing about Technion- but i do urge students to make informed choices about outcomes for US citizens who go to a given school, rather than only the laurels of the school or cute quips. Again, I know nothing about Technion and for all i know my own Chairman may be from there. But rememebr your decision making can't be on par anymore with a college frat guy or the average member of the voting public; get info to make your decision, not just a clever comeback.

Does anyone have any match lists for the Isreali schools? If think i saw them before and i remember thinking that SGU and ROSS had better matches than them.

Could someone post a link? Thanks.

The Israel matches I'v seen are very close to US quality.with many matches in competitive programs..Especially in the NY area or CA.Research from med schools in Israel is frequently published in journals.I see it all the time.The institutions are well known and will get attention from name hospitals.

Do you have any links to match lists? From the few that i saw a while ago, the matches from sgu and ross where better than the isreali schools.

According to surveys of our graduates, 99% of our US eligible graduates obtain residencies, generally their first or second choice.

If you pass parts 1 and 2 of the USMLE and are a US citizen you are virtually certain to match in a residency if you apply to enough programs in the right (primary care)specialties unless you have a some serious interpersonal problem.
Most med schools will tell you that their graduates get one of their top choices come residency match time.This information is of limited value since applicants generally self select the specific programs,specialties to which they will apply based on their credentials and the match history of their med schools previous grads. Then one will rank programs to which thay have been invited to interview.So in the end the likelyhood at matching at one of your top ranked programs is high.

All that list shows is where people are now. It doesnt show where they matched or in what field.

Even with only showing where they are, they have very few students in the US. I m estimating probably under 200 on that list (unless multiple people at any institution).

SGU graduates about 500 students and Ross even more each year, and 99% of them return to the US.

At Sackler- around 60 graduate a year. Every year sackler hands out a list of the residencies that the previous year achieved and the entire list appears in their catalogue, which they will be more then glad to send you by mail if you want it. The list that they show you does have multiple people in the same hospital.

P.S. good luck with applications
