What are your general comments?

"I was simply blown away by Johns Hopkins. From witnessing the collegiality present between the fellows and the other physicians during a Grand Rounds session to interacting with the current students, it is readily apparent that the greatest asset of Johns Hopkins is its medical community. As such, they invest greatly in making sure every member is as well trained as possible. The curriculum includes journal clubs, clinician shadowing, traditional lectures, small group sessions, and several special courses (like Physician and Society) that cover the issues that will become increasingly pertinent to the profession. I cannot say enough good things about my interview day, the curriculum, and Johns Hopkins in general. It was a great honor just to visit such an amazing institution." -Posted 09/29/2007 | Report Response
