Well, that's good news....I sort of expected that was the way it was. It is good to know what one would be getting into....thanks.pbmax said:I'll speak to the lack of malignant personalities at Brown.
Memorial Hospital is one of the community hospitals at Brown - absolutely one of the best hospitals for medical students. The attendings and residents there are great teachers and the staff is extremely pleasant. The same goes for the Miriam Hospital - it is reknown for its ID and cardiology but the teaching and personalities there are wonderful.
Rhode Island Hospital is the major teaching hospital at Brown. It has the busiest ER in New England and has really become an academic epicenter. The surgeons are surgeons but everyone else is super - the medicine residency is super laid back but very good in teaching. And the diversity of patients seen is extremely good.
Woman and Infants has the seventh busiest L&D floor in the U.S. It has a very good residency program. Some medical students have a good experience there, some do not. I think the folks at W&I have become very aware of making sure med students are treated fairly and thus a strong emphasis has been placed on this in the last year or so. Personally, I had a very good experience here.
Hope this helps...in short, I would do Brown Medical School all over again...it has been that good. And our match list rocks!
Where do u get info on things like this? and does being on probation necessarily mean it's a bad program?monstermatch said:FYI, If you want to do Ophthalmology Brown's program is one of the worst in the country and is on probation, Jefferson's is one of the best in the world.

Do you think you'll go to Brown? Are you a Standard MD applicant?
