Hi all,
Does anyone have any info on Walter Reed PM&R program?
Call schedule, rotations, etc?
also, does anyone know if it is good?
I saw their website but it was most uninformative.
Thanks so much!

I'm a Walter Reed PM&R grad.
1. The call schedule:
That's kind of complicated because WR residents rotate at 3 outside/civilian rehab hospitals in addition to the in house rotations. In house call is home call and isn't too bad. The outside rotations have in house call 1-2x/week.

2. The rotaton: the rotation for medical students is pretty chill. 2weeks of outpt (shadowing) and 2weeks of inpatient (no call and no wknds); during residency - challenging PGY-2 yr (primarily inpt rotations, like TBI, stroke, neuro/general); pgy3-4: primarily outpt (EMG, outpatient Ortho, sports, MSK/US, Rheum, and Peds) and inpt (Peds and Spinal Cord)
Great staff. Top notch EMG training (most residents score high on EMG related topics on insevice and boards)

I did a few months at WRAMC PM&R and did an internship at NNMC. I loved the program, and here are the highlights.

-unbelievable staff. Feels like a family...very well supported
-excellent residents who are very down to earth
-elite poly trauma experience
-very good outpatient with unlimited resources...very supportive of OMT, acupuncture, dry needling. You name it and they are supportive
-elite didactics
-unbelievable multidisciplary outpatient TBI clinic with world renown mental health providers and Neurologists
-excellent didactics...you even get frequent MSK Radiology through Rads
-I don't know if this has changed since the budget crunch, but good research opportunities. NIH is literally across the street
-Bethesda is a fantastic town for singles and families...best public schools in the country
-elite EMG...one of the best in the country...Sinai and Georgetown rotate through
-affiliated with both Georgetown and Sinai, so very good outside rotations to fill the gaps of what isn't available at WRNMMC.
-the best patients in the world...the most deserving of care

If WRNMMC was a civilian program it would be in the "big 6"...easily. Pretty special place. I'm still bumbed that I can't go being Navy.

Still a useful thread...assuming the OP isn't the last person to apply to WRNMMC.
