What do you like most?

"Patient population of Newark. Believe the hype - people really are incredibly sick. You will see diseases even residents trained at other programs have never seen. Patients tend to have little to no primary care, so diseases are typically end-stage and impressive. State-school in an urban, low income area means most people don't have big egos (not always true). There are opportunities to do rotations at hackensack, st barnabas, morristown hospitals to get a better grasp of upper-middle class (insured) patient care." | Report Response

"Some good professors. Rewarding clinical experiences due to diverse disadvantaged urban population mixed in with surrounding wealthy suburbs." | Report Response

"Lots of clinical opportunities to take advantage of, and professors that really care about helping you UNDERSTAND the material." | Report Response

What do you like least?

"Student affairs office is not great. The hospital and medical school facilities are older." | Report Response

"Lot unnecessary mandatory sessions. Teach a lot of STEP 2 material in preclinical years instead of focusing on basics. Not much STEP1 allocated study time. Administration is very arrogant and lazy. Anatomy is heavily over weighted in grading scheme, averaging 30% of the grade in all of the blocks. Overpriced for a state school. City of Newark is a food desert." | Report Response

"Block scheduling sometimes does not give enough time to absorb all the material." | Report Response

"Horrible admin, too much wasted time in 1st/2nd year." | Report Response

"Politics" | Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"Going to this school will not preclude you matching to a great residency. Keep in mind many aspects of medical school education are dependent on which residents are rotating at a certain time, which changes from year to year and may render older advice obsolete. NJMS switched to a "systems-based" 1st and 2nd year curriculum a few years ago." | Report Response
