I was wondering if any residents, rotating students or anyone else had any opinions on the Harbor program. I really liked the program during my visit but am from the East coast and did not get to spend much time there. Thanks.
During my interview, I recall hearing something along the lines of an expected bump in volume of roughly 10,000 visits per year. I don't recall whether that was expected from MLK or RFK...Sessamoid said:The closure of MLK's trauma will have some, but not a huge, effect on Harbor. The majority of that trauma volume will be going to California Hospital and USC/County downtown. More of an impact will come from the closure of nearby RFK, as they both serve similar population economically and geographically. In short, it's definitely a hard-working residency program but with excellent didactics as well. When I rotated there as a student many moons ago, there seemed to be more of an emphasis on "moving the meat" during day-to-day work than I found in my own program later.
