I have been pointing this out for awhile now. I have the names of each resident (or at least the ones that are known) that this has happened to. It is VERY bizarre. It is sad it takes getting in the Washington Post for some one to finally notice this is strange. I wonder how long they thought they could go on doing this.

Do we know if these women are still alive? Maybe they are some sort of sacrifice to appease the ghost of Freud or something?

They probably disagreed with Hillary Clinton. I would be concerned about possible involuntary suicide.

I was gonna apply to GW. Thinking that I might not anymore after hearing about all of this. I don't want to go to a program that could possibly think this sort of thing is acceptable.

Programs are more often isolated from one another in terms of culture and style of management. At least that's my sense of it. I'm sure some institutions share a common groupthink among their PD's.

Regardless. It's very hard to know the truth of these matters. On the one hand, we all realize that we're in an ancient guild system, wherein we squire for and serve our lords until we become one. So that inflames our defenses and distorts our perception of reality.

That said. The DNC handlers prolly did have them iced.

Regardless of what the other side of the story is, I know this will keep me and at least 2 of my friends applying to psych from applying to this residency. This is psych and we're American grads—no need to waste $16 on a program reputed to treat residents that way. Not worth it.

Totally agree, not applying there this cycle. Was considering it before all this mess.

I'm applying psych and would not apply here. Sounds sketchy and I also am not a huge DC fan anyway, no loss to me not to waste $16 applying to a school I probably wouldn't even rank
