What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Mrs. Jones is your patient who has Hep C. You enroll in her in the clinical study you're in charge of, which is funded by a multi-million dollar pharmaceutical company. The study tests the only known medication that has worked in initial studies for Hep C. However, as you continue your study, initial results show that little improvement in Mrs. Jones' condition. The pharmaceutical company asks you to remove Mrs. Jones from this study and any subsequent studies having to do with this medication. Discuss." More from this Member | Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"You are a physician in a city with first, second, and third generation immigrants and a big problem with diabetes. These immigrants are known to use alternative medicines to cure their ailments.

"Trauma, stress, and discrimination are part of life experiences. Please explain how you have coped with these types of situations and how you plan to continue these methods through your medical education." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school puts an emphasis on taking care of mental health! They have quirky ways to make you active while you're studying too. Really nice apartments right next to school with Walmart & HEB across the street! Access to Anatomy Lab all throughout pre-clinical years!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students seem happy and the curriculum is amazing with tons of independent and group work." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty was very experienced and friendly. The facilities and equipment were all new. The current students were helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Flipped classroom style, mandatory lectures, professional dress 3/5 days of the week" More from this Member | Report Response

"No tuition discounts for being one of the 1-4 entering classes" More from this Member | Report Response

"Two of the MMIs had the interviewer not show emotion or ask follow up questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Though the school is renovated, the facade is very dated and underwhelming. Since the school is newer it appears to be a risky choice compared to more established schools." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Awesome school & passionate Dean!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school! Even if it is new, their curriculum is top notch as well as their equipment and buildings." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it seems like a terrific school. The faculty had all worked at various other medical schools so the fact that UIWSOM is so new did not deter me as much. The dean even has experience starting another successful medical school. Other than the area not being incredibly nice it seems that UIWSOM has a bright future."
