What impressed you positively?

"the happiness of the students. the move to a pass/fail system(it used to be honors/pass/fail). the gross anatomy lab is the best gross anatomy lab i have seen out of the 5 other ga labs i've been to. there is no smell!!!!! county-usc is the busiest hospital i have ever seen. beds are literally stacked on each other in the ER with more patients lining the wall on chairs. if u want to be in the ER county-usc is the place to be. training at county would probably get you the most clinical exposure as a med student because of the large volume of patients and plethora of cases there." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"county-usc isn't exactly a brand spankin new paperless techno-wonder hospital...however, would i rather train at GWU's new hospital or at county-usc? county for sure because i would be exposed to waaay more cases, which is more important than being in a spiffy hospital." Report Response
