    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boston Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good and diverse patient population, reasonable benefits, holidays during VA rotations

    Cons

    This evaluation is for the geriatric department. Their fellowship program is poor, patient care fragmented and there is very little inpatient experience. Call schedule is a nightmare and absurd. They expect you to pick up the phone for 72 hours straight, no sleep and then drive around all morning for futile home visits in the middle of the winter ( difficult to get reimbursed for transportation related expenses, you will be on your own on that one). You will be exposed to dangerous situations in someone’s else’s home every week. No real hospice experience. Some of the staff are extremely racist and nepotism is a serious issue in that department. Not to be mean but having nurse practitioners was exactly the greatest learning experience. Their decision making is poor and they don’t even get residency training. There are way better geriatric fellowship programs in Ma and neighboring states, BMC is a poor option overall.
