What do you like most?

"Early clinical exposure, seeing patients in first month of med school through volunteering and preceptor" | Report Response

"Broad exposure to pathology- rotations through urban academic center, cook county hospital (huge inner city safety net hospital- clinical experience here is unbeatable)- plus opportunities to work in inner city health clinics and suburban ambulatory primary care" | Report Response

"clinical curriculum is excellent as Rush is a top hospital in the country. Definitely a hidden gem as it does not have the name recognition of other places because it is a small school with no undergrad or large grad programs. Also very down to earth classmates who are engaged and like to learn, but also have a good time. Not a class full of pointdexters." | Report Response

"I love the the faculty, the students, and the location. The faculty will bend backwards to help you. They are extremely accessible and really want to make sure you are learning. The same can be said for the students. There is no feeling of competitiveness - everyone wants to see everyone else succeed and is very down to earth. Chicago is also an incredible city and they are building a whole new hospital!" | Report Response

"close-knit community" | Report Response
