    Psych at Rogers Memorial Hospital

    Advertisements



    Hello, everyone. I am about to begin my psych core at Rogers Memorial Hospital in Milwaukee. Can anyone give me some information about this rotation? Do they teach you a lot? How are the hours? Do you have time to study for CS during the rotation?

    Thanks in advance!

    Rogers is an inpatient psych facility in West Allis, just outside of Milwaukee. It has both child, adolescent/teenager, and adult psychiatric populations, as well as an eating disorders unit, drugs and addition unit, and an outpatient "same-day" program. So basically, you will get a varied and wide exposure to the what kind of patients and practices you are afforded as a psychiatrist. There are different physicians who specialize in the varied units, for the most part, you will be 1 on 1 with your preceptor, perhaps working with a fellow as well.

    This rotation can be as easy or demanding as you would like it to be. It would be the ideal rotation for which to prepare for Step II CK, for example, as you could do UWorld questions all day and night and still fulfill your duties at Rogers aptly. In addition, in preparing for the psychiatry shelf at the end of the rotation, you could be knocking out psych for Step II, which closely mirrors the materials you would encounter in First Aid Psych or Case Files psych. If you are really keen on psychiatry like one of my rotation mates was, you could spend almost all day and night at the facility, doing all sorts of different things, and keeping yourself engaged. However, the majority of my peers enjoyed the rotation because for as much as it offered, there is no mistaking it for surgery or IM - the hours were uniform and less demanding.

    Overall a very strong rotation, and one I am happy to have done. Good luck, and represent our school well.
