National Wellness Month: A look into the life of Benedictine’s Dr. ReverBy: Retu Domnic

Dr. George W. Rever is a psychiatrist that works with children with neuro-developmental health issues. He has been working part time with the Benedictine school since 1991.

Early on in his life, he attended University of Maryland, College Park from 1946 to June, 1950. Near the end of World War 2, the campus was crowded and rapidly growing as veterans attended school using the G.I. bill.

In the fall of 1950, Dr. Rever was drafted into the Korean War where he served in the U.S. Army for two years and spent about six years in Korea as a medical aid since he hadn’t attended medical school yet.

While in Korea, Dr. Rever was awarded a Bronze star medal for merit. He then applied to medical school while in the Army and then attended the University of Maryland Medical School.

Following medical school he completed his rotating internship at Mercy Hospital in Baltimore. He then made the move to Boston to start a residency in psychiatrics and neurology at VA Boston Hospital.

Dr. Rever went on to a fellowship program at Harvard Medical School and then became an instructor there. Before moving to the Eastern Shore, he worked at Mass General Hospital spending a total of 32 years in Boston.

Dr. Rever moved to the Eastern Shore in 1990 and formed the Mid Shore Mental Health Services along with other psychiatrists. This organization served Kent, Queen Anne’s, Caroline, Talbot, and Dorchester counties.

He then started his work at the Benedictine School which Dr. Rever says is the most rewarding out of his whole career.

We thank Dr. Rever for his long service at the Benedictine School.
