What are your general comments?

"The interview was fine. But my purpose of posting this message is to let everyone thinking about applying/coming to TUCOM know that you should investigate the quality of the faculty. In my opinion, the first year faculty are fairly well organized, but the second year faculty...well, good luck! The second year clinical systems course is an intergrated course that includes various systems (respiratory, renal, cardio etc.) but the faculty is primarily a non-board certified self-proclaimed internal medicine D.O. and a family practice D.O., and then there are a few outside physicians who come in and lecture who I think are a lot better than in-house faculty. The course includes handouts that are given in every lecture, compared to first-year where all the handouts are given as a packet. The second year is taught in a very unorganized manner so most of the learning is through self-teaching. They have built 2 new class rooms but even then audio-visual systems don't often work. Overall, if I had to do it again, I would NOT choose TUCOM. But everyone makes their own decisions...Either way GOOD LUCK!" Report Response
