CWRU AI Review

Program Review

Staff / Faculty / Chairman
The staff are excellent. Dr. Marcus is probably the nicest guy I have ever met and he seems to really care about his residents. The trauma attendings at Metro are amazing.
Didactics / Teaching
There are numerous conferences, lectures and grand rounds. Teaching is the best I've seen among different programs.
Operating Experience
I gave this place a 9 instead of a 10 due to lower volume. With that being said, you will probably not find a place with as well-rounded an operative experience. Despite the lower numbers, residents come out of here comfortable stepping into a general practice, although all pursue fellowship. The program is weaker in sports. Strong in everything else, especially trauma.
Clinic Experience
Clinic is clinic. Not too much. Not too little. No attending breathing down your neck.
Research Opportunities
This is CWRU.
Residents
Residents are all very cool. All the chiefs and residents went out of their way to show me around and make sure I felt comfortable with the place. Residents were more jock type compared to other programs I've been at. About 1/2 are married.
Lifestyle
Sex, sports, and alcohol.
Location / Housing
Picked this place to rotate based on reputation and it's close to my grandparents. However, when I first drove into town I thought "what a dump". But after 4 weeks, Cleveland is not that bad. Suburbs are nice. Downtown is clean. The football team sucks, but that's what satellite is for. Housing is cheap. Can buy a 3-5 bedroom house for the same price as a 1 bedroom condo in Chicago. Simple guy with simple lifestyle.
Overall Rotation Experience / Conclusion
Overall, I had a fantastic time at CWRU. I was impressed by Metro and a number of faculty. The facilities are top notch. I am seeking a residency with a great trauma experience and will rank CWRU very highly, if not number 1.

Qualification

I rotated as a medical student at this program
