What do you like most?

"The case based curriculum. Now in my third year i really am ahead going into rotations." | Report Response

"Having a lot of time to self study. Knowing what is going on in class from have lots of time to do the reading the day before by getting out at 12 and class is more interactive with friends and classmates because we learn how to apply things together we already did the hard work outside of class. I also like that we have a preceptor our first year, reminds us of why we are doing what we are doing. Also they are fairly open to feedback, and you have a voice to see changes made if you put the time and effort." | Report Response

"Adult learning. Not sitting in a classroom for 8 hours a day. Actually able to apply what we learn to cases each week. Significant amount of clinical experience in our first year. Also it is a true pass/fail, so fellow classmates aren't cut throat." | Report Response

What do you like least?

"the essay based test can take some getting used to, but it really has helped me in rotations." | Report Response

"Sometimes can be disorganized. Also feel like the school is less straightforward about preparing us for things like research experience. Whereas I know other schools have you on a plan from day 1 with advisors. Overall am so grateful I chose this school over the other out of state schools I got into. Working with other people in groups to solve cases and applying our knowledge from day 1 really feels like its preparing me to treat my patients, and is more enjoyable than experiences of others I know in more traditional schools" | Report Response

"Can be very disorganized as a new school. They expect a lot from us, from getting EMT certified on top of all our normal coursework to not providing answers to any power points." | Report Response
