A little birdie told me recently that Bethesda was planning on setting up an EM residency to start in the 2013 time frame. Apparently a partnership with GWU will be a prominent part of the program. Anyone have any comment or additional scuttlebutt?

George Washington is level I though. (but yes, NNMC ED still has the rep for being pretty dead...might have more cases by 2013 with the BRAC though)

NNMC always had a reputation for being low acuity. Has that changed??
the ED there is an absolute ghost town (makes for great customer service, if you're going in for something quick . . .was in/out in 30 minutes).

the ED at Balboa seems to be a lot busier, in terms of volume. cant speak of acuity. How high can the acuity be at any non-Level 1 ED? (I'm so ignorant, I still don't understand why EM is a specialty :))
