      Geriatric department

      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.

      Pros

      Great patient population. Greatly understaffed, so you get to work on more than 1 project, which means that you can learn a lot of different skills in a short period of time. Great free health insurance.

      Cons

      Horribly understaffed (causing many employees to feel burnt out and be rude), no supplies or resources available, benefits are unclear and hard to get (except health insurance), lack of transparency with HR
