Pros

Christiana Care is an excellent option for an Internal Medicine Residency. It is a large community hospital ideally located near Philadelphia & Baltimore. While it is not a University based hospital, it is the major trauma center for Delaware and has pretty much all the sub-specialties you need. It also is the major delivery hospital for Del with the majority of deliveries in Delaware taking place here. New fellowships are being formed each year with Nephrology & Cardiology being the current options.

Cons

Not University based. Major area in need of improvement is in research, both bench and clinical.

    Pros

    The people are supportive and professional. Relationship between physicians, nurses, administrators is one of open communication for the most part. Dept. chairs seem genuinely involved and concerned in the work of their staff.

    Cons

    Not connected with a major academic center. Primary care salaries are only fair. Specialists are accessible but seem to be doing things that primary care docs do elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Primary care needs to be more of a priority vs. specialty care

    Pros

    It's a large teaching hospital with many resources. Hospitalists are in house 24/7 so getting orders for things the patients need is faster than getting call backs from private healthcare providers. The rooms have ceiling mounted lifts which is great for both staff and patient safety. They have an onsite RN-BSN program and internships for nurses interested in the MICU, ED, NICU, and OR. Scheduling is flexible for the most part. Parking is free. The campus is smokefree.

    Cons

    I don't feel like I have an advocate within my unit's management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of the peer review process I think it would be very revealing for nurses to review unit based management.
