What impressed you positively?

"Everyone! Staff, faculty and students were all very, very positive and helpful. Mayo Foundation has tons of $$$, so facilities are great. They have audio/video hookup with their clinics in Jacksonville and Scottsdale so in some lectures, you get interaction with students there (on rotation). Also, met Dean Windebank. He said he normally does a formal-type powerpoint presentation, but decided to just sit down with us (6 of us) and talk. It was a very interactive conversation about all sorts health care issues. I felt that, if I still had a question, I could go to his office and ask him." -Posted 02/07/2003 | Report Response
