Just looking for some general information about the Ortho Program at Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley, California.

1. The program and any strenghts/weaknesses (ie, patient volume, diversity of procedures)

2. Is the program affiliated with other hospitals for certain rotations such as trauma, hand, sports, etc?

3. Being from Michigan, I know very little about the area. What is it like geographically and culturally?

Thank you!

i'm one of the new interns. RCRMC is a solid program, it was my first choice. Tons of volume (mostly trauma), early OR time, great operative autonomy and greatly improved didactics. We rotate at Kaiser for sports, joints and Children's Orange County for Peds. Should be starting a new rotation in the Dominican Rep soon.

Large hispanic population in the desert between LA and San Diego (1.5 hours to either city), hour from the beach or mountains. sunny almost always. no snow....ever.

Do you mind me asking how heavy they are on board scores (ie cutoff)? Also is a rotation required to obtain an interview?

As an intern, i'm still pretty much in the dark. It appears to me that board scores are a part of it. If you don't rotate there they should be high. Doing well on a rotation here is probably the most important thing you can do to improve your chances.
