What do you like most?

"Immersion into the clinic with emphasis on history and physical exam early on. Integration of anatamoge, radiology and butterfly ultrasound devices in first year of cadaveric anatomy class. Strong match list. Affiliated with The Jackson Laboratories for Genomic Medicine where there are top scientists for early bench research experiences, as well as opportunities for dual degrees and fellowships such as HHMI, NIH, Sarnoff, etc." | Report Response

"Small class (~90) but Pre-clinical years are combined with dental school (another 40 people). Clinical sites are nearby with varied patient population, including a VA. Lots of emphasis on clinical training, strong physical exam and history taking emphasis, even in pre-clinical years. 1/2 day per week of primary care clinic beginning in September of MS 1." | Report Response

What do you like least?

"Although a strength for some, the mandatory public health certificate may encumber time that could be spent for research/shadowing etc. depending on your personal interests. They emphasis training physicians for primary care, though we match into more competitive specialties every year. Must find your own mentor early on to understand different opportunities (an issue probably not specific to this school)." | Report Response

"The administration is a little bit aloof, sometimes hard to access." | Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"As a CT resident, this school offers students a quality education at an affordable price. Faculty and staff are supportive and there are opportunities to pursue your own interests within the first year." | Report Response

"I thought it was a great place to go to medical school: definitely teaches you the basics and there are lots of good learning opportunities at various clinical sites. My class's match list was very strong which I think reflects the school's ability to prepare us well for residency." | Report Response
