What do you like most?

"Opportunity to participate in unique longitudinal programs for 3rd year clerkships: RPAP (rural emphasis on full-spectrum family medicine and general surgery), MetroPAP (emphasis on underserved communities), and VALUE (emphasis on internal medicine). Also, the school is recognized as a leader both in research AND in primary care." | Report Response

"Great variety of clinical situations in 3rd and 4th year. The U of M is the only med school in the Twin Cities, so you pretty much of free reign to go to any of the 10+ hospitals in the area (depending on the rotation)." | Report Response

"Student opportunities and support from med school staff: financial aid is great, academic support is too" | Report Response

"Options to do clinical rotations at many different sites: academic health centers, inner city hospitals, suburban hospitals, rural hospitals; Pass/ Fail system for the first two years" | Report Response

"Heard the school is changing their curriculum and the transition has been less than smooth." | Report Response

"It's big, and I get lost as a number." | Report Response
