House begins this episode with 27 fellowship applicants, which he is narrowing down to two or three over a series of episodes. Starting now I am listing the nine that will be crucial for the following episodes and will cross them off as they are eliminated by House.
Because I don't know if the original Housepets will rejoin the Department of Diagnostic Medicine, I will continue to list them as well. From now on I'll list them all in alphabetical order.
The nine prospective Housepets are:
(#37), epidemiologist nicknamed Grumpy
(#18), geneticist nicknamed Big Love
(#26), not a doctor
Remy Hadley, called Thirteen (#13)
, internist (her name can be seen on Chase's betting slips in Mirror, Mirror
(#6/9), rehabilitative and sports medicine specialist
(#39), plastic surgeonTwins
(#15A &15B), pediatric endocrinologists
(#24), interventional radiologist nicknamed Cutthroat BitchInitial Symptoms:

At the end of the episode it is revealed that both Chase and Cameron are still at PPTH, Chase as a surgeon and Cameron as an attending in the Emergency department (I'm not sure which is more ridiculous). Foreman is running a diagnostic group in a different hospital.
Pheochromacytomas are associated with some types of Von Hipple-Lindau disease.
House started with 27 fellowship candidate in this episode, which were narrowed down to these nine by the end.
Some have argued that during the surgery House did know the correct diagnoses before Chase revealed them. There's no way to be sure and I myself saw no proof of it, so I'm awarding these diagnoses to Chase.
