The program is pretty good. Your in Detroit so there is no shortage of interesting cases. You rotate through Receiving, Harper, Childrens, VA, and Sinai Grace. The toughest call will be at Receiving which is q3. It is a good team atmosphere. You are working with world renowned surgeons such as Lucas and Ledgerwood who basically wrote the book on trauma and Dr. Wilson who was the first to describe high output cardiac failure in septic shock. You will definitely get the experience needed to be an excellent physician. A couple of downsides is Wayne State is not a big research center although it is improving in this area and the DMC is not the best looking of hospitals and I am not too found of the cafeteria. Anyways, just my opinion. Keep in mind I am a fourth year student at Wayne State and not a resident. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any specific questions.

The word in detroit is that the DMC is not a good place to be as Wayne State's ties to the DMC are questionable at this time. The ortho program died this year. There goods and bads to the program. One thing you will get is exposure when at the DMC, and Sinai Grace is a good place for trauma (much of Detroit's penetrating trauma occurs in this area).
