What impressed you negatively?

"3rd year is spent all over the state, which seems like a pain; the population they see is not really a cross-section of America, since they treat mostly rural patients; the emphasis for clinical experience is less than desirable (partially because of the population), and the experiences in the community seem to be quite few. " Report Response

"nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good place, good hospital. The education seems to be quite good, but they seem to be lagging behind with patinet interaction (even simulated), which is becoming more important to students, and is easily better covered at other Virgnia schools. If you're into going to a school based on reputation, and not on what you'll experience, it's fantastic. " Report Response
